Undercurrents hosts pool sessions throughout the off-season so that paddlers can practise their skills without an instructor. It is a great excuse to do a little paddling and socializing while the weather is cool!
Kayak, paddle and sprayskirt are provided by MRU, but if you want to bring your own boat let us know. For space reasons, maximum boat length is 13 feet.
Come prepared to have fun and get wet!
16+ years old (or 12-15 years old with a guardian in the pool).
Completion of the Kayak Discovery Clinic or previous experience with a kayak and the ability to perform a wet exit.
To ensure everyone has a great time, we cannot accept "drop-ins".

Registration & Refunds
Full payment is due at registration to secure your spot in the course.
On the rare occasion when Undercurrents cancels a lesson, we will issue a full refund or make every reasonable effort to register you in an equivalent program; it is your choice. We need 3 participants to run a course.
If you cancel for any reason more than 7 days (14 days for multi-day courses) prior to the course commencement, you will receive a full refund less our $10 administrative fee.
There is no refund if you cancel for any reason within 7 days (14 days for multi-day courses) of the course.
Courses go rain or shine. Here in Alberta we can have rain, snow, blistering heat or high winds - sometimes on the same day. Don't believe weather forecasts; dress for varying weather conditions. If you need help, our store staff can give you great advice!
A “risk of thunderstorms” forecast does not mean we will cancel a course. During the warm season “risks” are issued too frequently; we only experience thunderstorms at our course locations 10-20% of the time that a “risk” is issued. We will meet at the course location and make an appropriate decision using the outdoor industry’s standard lightning protocol.
