Development Classes


Ages 10–18

Participants will learn water safety and basic paddling skills in an assortment of canoes and kayaks. As skills increase, paddlers will learn race paddling techniques.

Previous paddling experience is not required, and we provide all equipment.

This course requires a Float Test and a signed Risk & Release and Medical Form on file.

The development classes are held in spring and summer.

Please go to the Sparc Page to find classes and to register.  Click 'Boating' on the left and then click 'Canoe & Kayaying'.

Note, it is often possible to register after classes start especially if your child has previously taken our development class.  Stop by the Small Crafts Office at the Green Lake Boathouse (south end of the lake).
