Combat Rolling Class

The combat roll is an elusive but crucial skill that will open many doors and improve your confidence immensely.  Explore and practice the physical and mental techniques needed to pull rolls off EVERY time you need them.  We will discover how variation, bi-lateral repetition, and contextual interference can better ingrain the fundamental movements needed for rolling in dynamic water.  We will begin rolling in The North Clackamas Aquatic Park wave pool then move into more and more challenging rolling situations on day 2!  We are all between swims, but hopefully this clinic will make those swims less frequent and far less likely.            

 

 

The course will begin with an indoor wave pool session during a week day evening.  We will develop your rolling abilities in dynamic situations focusing on Technique, Tactics, Psychological skills, and Psychological limitations and advantages in the safety and comfort of the calm pool before turing on the waves!  From there we test our skills at a local river (class II+) during the weekend river session.  Sea kayakers, whitewater boaters, and canoists are all welcome to participate!

Exclusions

Gratuity:  It's NEVER expected but always appreciated.  If you feel your coaches / guides have done an exceptional job and made your experience a memorable one, then you can certainly show your appreciation by giving a tip. The amount is totally up to you. Many people believe that anyone in a service type of job (like restaurant and hotel employees, hair dressers and dog groomers, etc.) should get between 10-20% of the total cost of the service. That is not to say that’s what we suggest, but that’s what most people tip when they do tip. So, for instance, if your trip was $200.00, and your guide made your experience a memorable one, a $20-$40 tip would be generous and greatly appreciated!

If your coach / guide was so exceptional that you want him or her to be your guide on all future trips, simply request them at the time you make your reservation.  While we cannot promise he/she will be available, we will do everything in our power to accommodate your request.
