This is the first in our PSC Training Series, Introduction to Paddling for Canoe . It will be held at Oakhurst FP, a sheltered lake in Aurora. Come join us for a safe, fun, family friendly day of canoe instruction. This class is taught by instructors who are certified by the American Canoe Association; the emphasis will be on safe and efficient paddling techniques. By the end of the day, you will have more paddling skill than 75% of people who say that they know how to paddle. Some paddling strokes you will learn include: fwd, rev, stop, spin (pivot), sideways (abeam), turning and many other skills to paddle your craft skillfully on calm protected waters.
