"To have more fun on the river, and to progress into easy whitewater paddling, we have to learn to -play- the river”
If you have completed our River 101 course or equivalent then you are ready to take it to the next level on the River Play Course. Combine our River 101 course with the River Play course for a full weekend of River learning and fun!
If you want to really learn how to river paddle - start here with us!
We are please to partner up with Undercurrents in Calgary to bring you our River Play courses on our premier, local, whitewater learning site - the Kananskis River!
Please note that the course does not include personal clothing or gear, food, or travel – please see our Gear and Clothing tab.
Course Cancellation: It is rare that we cancel a session due to weather considerations however we will do so if, in our judgement, the conditions are dangerous or are likely to present a poor learning environment.
We will meet Friday evening at the Kananaskis Visitor Center off of Highway 40 in Kananaskis Country. See Map.
Course start time: TBA. Please arrive about 30 minutes early, so that you are unloaded, changed, and ready to begin at the start time. Arriving late will cut into your instructional time, and that of others on the course.
We suggest that you bring high energy snacks and drink with you. On cool days we especially recommend bringing a thermos with a hot drink.
You will need a lunch which we will eat at our cars prior to our afternoon river run sessions.
