CanoeKayak Canada – Whitewater (CKCW) is pleased to announce the BC launch of the new national kayak instruction program for Canada. It has recently been embraced by all of the Provincial Sport Organizations as the preferred program for whitewater kayak instruction.
The ‘launch’ workshop is significantly subsidized and will be offered in Chilliwack the weekend of Oct 29th – 31st.
The workshop is designed to appeal to two types of kayaking instructors:
1. Those who have some instruction and leadership experience and want to improve their skills and knowledge and be awarded certification suitable for teaching on class I and class II rivers.
2. Those with significant kayaking instruction and leadership experience who are interested in becoming Learning Facilitators in the region of BC where they live (note that for reasons related to classroom size, budget, instructor ratios and demand, preference will given to registrants from Northwestern BC, Northeastern BC, Thompson/Okanagan and the Kootenays).
Course space will be limited to 20 individuals. Contact Don Barrie for more information.
