Our Junior Kayak Program and League is a great way for kids and teens to get involved in kayaking. It provides a fun after-school and summer activity that promotes friendship, fitness, outdoor education, leadership, and just enjoying the river. Visit the Junior Kayak League website for more information: www.juniorkayakleague.com
The goal of our youth program is to develop young paddlers into safe and confident kayakers. All aspects of kayaking are taught in the youth program including paddling skills, safety and rescue skills, on-river communication, leadership and organization, teamwork, fitness, logistics, and of course FUN.
Team members can compete in the Colorado Kayak Rodeo series as well as downriver and slalom races. Downstream Edge teams throughout Colorado will compete against each other in several friendly competitions each season. We will have competitions for paddlers of all abilities. The purpose of these events is to get to know members of other teams and to provide a fun competitive atmosphere. All members are not required to compete.
