  About the course:

It’s true that often the best part of any sport is getting to share it with friends… whitewater kayaking is no different!

The aim of these coaching sessions is to introduce paddlers to the joys of the river and the skills necessary to keep it safe, productive, and fun. Hiking with kayaks will be required of paddlers attending the Green River School Advanced sessions.
