Teaching Kayaking

Our kayaking program at the YMCA has been running for abut two months now.  The weather really started to get warmer about 2 weeks ago, and our students were obviously ready for something more than rolling in 2 lanes of the Y pool.  We’ve started to go out to the lake once or twice a week so we have a bit more space.

Kayak PoloYesterday, we played a great game of kayak polo (or our own version of the game).  Jim, our second instructor, was sick, so he stayed lakeside and took pictures for us.  Only three of our five students were there, so I joined in to make it 2 vs. 2.  After almost an hour, the score was tied at 8, and we started to play around and try out different boats.

Amanda and Grayson both got into wildwater C-1s Amanda in the C-1 for the second time, while Kody sat out because he forgot his kayaking clothes and didn’t want to get his clothes soaked if he flipped the wildwater boat.  We sat in the sun for a few minutes after we were done, then headed back to the Y.  Check out other pictures on my photos page.Grayson in the C-1
