Rolling Progression Pool Class (2 Spots Available)

Fidalgo Pool and Fitness Center Fidalgo Island, Anacortes, WA

If you plan to kayak on the sea then you need to know how to respond quickly and appropriately. Some techniques, such as the roll, can be best learned in a managed environment. Kayaking in a pool offers a warm, sheltered, and controlled environment to practice rescue and rolling skills. Learning in a comfortable environment allows you to focus fully on the technique and not on what might be underwater or downstream. Our coaches are supportive and break the skills down into their parts so the students gain a full understanding of each technique.
