Guided Kayaking Training in Richmond, VA

King of the James is right around the corner and river levels are prime for even novice paddlers to learn the river and participate in the race! Put in the time over the next month with our training program and learn to enjoy the rapids of the James River!

If you are not interested in racing, come out and try a whitewater kayak before work! Whitewater kayaking has a great crossover with sports like mountain biking and skiing. Let us provide you with the gear and knowledge to figure out if this sport is a good fit for you!

Remember when the trails are too wet for biking and running, paddlers are enjoying perfect conditions on the river right here in RVA!

We will provide personalized instruction with boat control, dialing race lines and working on paddling efficiency needed for your best effort.

Dawn Patrol Sessions:
Tuesdays and Thursday  6:00 AM – 7:30 AM

Wednesdays 5:00 PM

October 19th – November 11th
Tredegar Boat Ramp

Paddlers should have experience on class II/III whitewater and be working on or have a combat roll. If you need to learn how to roll, we would recommend signing up for our roll clinic before attending one of these trainings

Instruction will be divided into Novice & Advanced to cater towards all abilities attending.

Cost: $50 per single session, $250 for 6 sessions, and $320 for all 8 sessions. A portion of proceeds from these trainings will go directly to JROC!!!!

Paddlers are encouraged to register in advance.  Don’t hesitate to reach out and let us know your goals.
