The course begins with a review
of flatwater skills either on location unless there is an opportunity
to gather before to do the refresher.
After a review of flatwater skills, we move to river safety.
Communications, proper use of throwbags, throwing, cathcing and
stuffing and self rescue.
Theory is covered while getting ready at put-in, around the fire, and
when things come up.
Once the basics of safety and theory are covered we spend the rest of
out time together on skill development starting with the easy and
moving to the more complex.
All courses are geared to the student and what they would like to focus
on. All topics will be covered some in more detail than others.
There is not a specific outline as we are flexible and are usually
forced to adapt to our environment.
