Roll Sessions: Thursdays January 17-March 28 (Excluding March 14)
8:30pm-10:30pm at the Student Rec Center pool.
- If you are a beginner, come learn the basic skills needed to roll a whitewater kayak, from one of our trained instructors! All equipment and instruction is provided on a first-come, first-served basis each session. AWV has all equipment for 6-7 participants in this instructional portion of the pool session.
- If you already have your own equipment and want to hone your kayaking/rolling skills,
you are welcome to join in on the “open roll session” these evenings! Many members
WVU and the surrounding community bring their boats to the pool to do
their own practice.
- Sessions are FREE for students and SRC members! All others can pay $5 to join any session.
Are boats provided?AWV has equipment available for 6-7 participants in the instructional portion of the session. Spots in the instructional session are available to any attendees on a first-come, first-served basis each session.
Where do I bring my boat?Boats can be brought through the control desk after 8:00p. All boats must be clean and will be checked by the roll session monitor. If boats come into the pool excessively dirty, they will not be allowed into the pool.
Are there any boat limits?
Because this is an informal session, it is necessary for participants to monitor
their own boats in regard to crowding. If the pool gets too crowded, participants
are expected to take turns. A monitor will be present at the pool at all times.
*AWV recognizes that roll sessions are simply a great way to introduce or hone skills for whitewater kayaking, they do not replace actual on-river instruction with experienced guides.
