Canoe Certification Course

John Avant Pond, Saskatoon
Canoe Certification Course

SaskOutdoors is offering a Paddle Canada Lake Canoe Skills (flat water) Certification Course.

Paddle Canada instructors Bill Morris, Howard Sproat and Kim Archibald will provide participants the opportunity to become certified in introductory, intermediate or advanced skill levels, and will provide instruction in both tandem and solo paddling. Participants are also welcome to attend the workshop with the intent of improving their skills without seeking certification. Intermediate Tandem & Solo levels are recommended by many school divisions for those who intend to lead students in waterfront programs. This course will emphasize boat control and the necessary skills and knowledge needed to be safe and have fun while on the water.

Date and Time: Saturday May 18 9AM - Monday May 20 5PM

Location: Saskatoon at Erindale Lake in John Avant Park near the corner of Kenderdine and Kerr Road (just off McOrmond Road) in Saskatoon. John Avant Park has no facilities and the nearest public washrooms are at the fast food outlets that are about a five minute drive.

Cost: The cost is $330 for SaskOutdoors Members. The cost is $350 for Non-Members. More information on membership is available here

Canoes, paddles and PFDs are included.
