Kayak Safety Clinics (Ages 8 & Up)


Registration and payment can be completed online, by phone at 906-487-2073, or at the SDC Ticket Office. A SDC waiver of liability, OAP waiver and concussion awareness form must be submitted to the SDC Ticket office prior to participation (signed by a parent or guardian if under 18). Once the forms are received, you will get a ticket to give to the instructor at the pool. 

Looking to keep your kayak skills fresh as winter tightens its grasp on us? Join the OAP in the SDC pool for Kayak Safety and Practice Sessions! There are limited spaces available for these sessions, and we will provide all necessary equipment: kayak, paddle, PFD, spray skirt. We will be working on wet exits, self recovery, rescues, and assisted rescues. We will be in the water between 4-9 feet deep, with lifeguards on duty during the event. Maximum of 8 participants per session.
