Arkansas Canoe Club

Structure of the Whitewater School:

Classes are divided into Whitewater Kayak, Inflatable Whitewater Kayak, Solo Whitewater Canoe, Tandem Whitewater Canoe, Swiftwater Rescue, and Standup Paddleboard.      

Classes start with a meeting on Friday evening, then strenuous days on the water both Saturday and Sunday.

Class Assignments:

A very important factor in making this a good school is how closely people within each class are matched in experience, previous training, and certain other characteristics. 

Please, accurately note skills when filling out the school application!

Those registering for a tandem whitewater canoe class must have a partner who has also registered. We do not provide tandem partners.

All paddling classes spend time on the basics while transitioning from dry land, to flatwater, to moving water and to whitewater. Raising your awareness of the various hazards present in the river and practical options for those hazards is an objective in every class.

The Instructors receive information from the participants’ applications and will normally contact all class members about two weeks after enrollment closes.
