Practice Nights

If you want to get good at kayaking, you're going to have to practice. We make that easy by hosting FREE weekly practice sessions for our package students. These fun, structured, 2-hour sessions are coached by our top instructors and give students an opportunity to hone the skills they are learing in classes and develop paddling friendships. Practice is an essential part of any learning progression - make the necessary effort to be there, and be early! Here are the details on practice nights:


Beginner Whitewater Practice Sessions

- Held from the first week in June until the last week in October
- Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday's
- You MUST arrive 15 minutes early so we can start on time or you'll be turned away
- Held at Angler's Lot in Potomac, MD (click for map and directions)
- You must register in advance (be advised that sessions book up early)
- You may only attend one practice session per week
- If you own all your own equipment you can schedule one, and message us to be scheduled for multiples each week, you can come to as many practice sessions as you want!
- All participants must complete our electronic waiver and updated their medical information online
- People on the wait list usually make it into the session, keep a close eye on your status, we will not email you
- If you are registered for a session and can't make it, please remove yourself from the list at least 2 hours beforehand so others can get bumped off the wait list
- Sessions typically have 15-30 students and 1-2 instructors
- Sessions are held on flatwater. But sometimes, if we have an extra instructor, he or she will take some of the more advanced students up to moving water.
