    • Indianapolis, IN
    Registration is closed

    On May 21th, we will offer our first one-day introductory and intermediate skills sessions for 2022.  This class is  free for registered HCKC members.

    We will break our class up into Introductory and Intermediate Sections.

    Introductory Section -  ACA Introduction to Paddling Class

    Target Paddlers:  Newer HCKC members who have never taken a class or who want to tune up their strokes in their recreational, touring or sea kayak.  Parents with children over 13 year old may enroll with their children in this class.
    Class Content:  Here’s a way to jumpstart your paddling!  As a new kayaker, you may know how to move your boat around in calm water.  We will work with you to make your paddling easier and more efficient—to give you more control over your boat.  We will work on your basic knowledge, strokes, and other paddling skills that you may need to safely enjoy the sport.  This course is based on the American Canoe Association “Introduction to Kayaking” course.  This is also a great opportunity to ask any question that you might have about paddling, equipment, or the Hoosier Canoe and Kayak Club.
    Your instructor will first talk about the basics and then quickly get on the water to teach you how to move your boat forward, backwards, and sideways as well as how to turn and stop.  .

     Intermediate Section - Intermediate Techniques and Refinement
    Specific topic is TBD.  We can handle up to 5  students in each class.

    These classes are for recreational, touring, and sea kayak paddlers.


    Your Chance of Immersion: We will demonstrate rescue skills in the Intro class but you won’t intentionally be getting into the water at this clinic unless you want to practice rescues.  Thatcher Pool’s Wednesday night sessions are a better place to practice rescues and wet exits

    Class Size: Attendance for each class will be limited to 5 students for each instructor.   

    How to Sign Up -   Click on the "Register" box in the left column of this page.

    Enrollees must be registered HCKC Members and will be accepted based on the date that they register through the HCKC Event Calendar or e-mail to Duane Garloch (duane.garloch@gmail.com).  Please do not sign up unless you can stay for the entire clinic (9:00 am to 3:30 pm).

    Please bring your kayak, life jacket, paddle, paddling jacket, sun screen, and lunch.
    Safety equipment that you normally carry (e.g., pump, paddle float, stirrup, tow or throw rope …) Please don’t buy safety equipment just for this class since you have a chance to ask and figure out what makes sense for you.
    Paddling Clothing—Even though you won’t intentionally be capsizing, be sure to dress appropriately for the weather and water.  Bring a wind-proof paddling jacket since it may be windy and cool.  We will get out more info on what to wear in the pre-class e-mail.
    Spare clothes in a dry bag!  (Just in case)Questions—Please think about what you want to learn before the class and come with questions.

    HCKC Pool sessions at Thatcher are organized to allow HCKC members and guests to learn and practice paddling skills in a safe environment with other paddlers, some of which are ACA certified instructors but we all try to help each other get better and safer for when we venture out to the water!

    We still have COVID restrictions of no more than 15 boats in the water at one time and they have asked (loosely) that we continue to wear masks on the sidelines and in the changing rooms until we enter the water. Although this seems cumbersome at times it is still something the facility has requested of us.

    If you plan on coming and/or bringing your family for instruction or need gear, please let us know so we can be sure to have everything ready! This is a volunteer effort and appreciate your understanding!!

    Summit Lake Rescue Training Camp and Shore Clinic June 17-19

    Instructor Sponsor: Martha Gitt      Contact Martha with any questions regarding the training mailto:marthagitt@yahoo.com

    Please contact Martha Gitt marthagitt@yahoo.com  or Linda Decker lsdecker2018@gmail.com if interested in registering for this class

    Itinerary:

    Saturday June 18th Ready to Launch at 10:00am at Boat Launch

    Sunday June 19th Shore Clinic with on water practice to follow

    Location: Summit Lake 5993 N. Messick Road New Castle, Indiana  South Boat Launch Near Harvey Shelter (Enter Park and go left at the T intersection and follow the signs to the boat launch)

    We will be camping at Summit Lake State Park Campground Friday & Saturday Night. Campsites are competitive so reserve your campsites soon. 

    Optional: Attend Saturday Day Session Only

    Join us for a 2-day fun weekend of practicing sea kayak handling and rescue techniques.  We will focus on how to manage your boat to keep from capsizing, and how to get yourself and your friends back into their boats when the inevitable happens in open water.  There will be plenty of time to work on strokes, bracing, balancing, towing, and rescues.  Plus, time to play games, show off your skills, and build the teamwork necessary to explore new places.

    This clinic is an opportunity for new paddlers to learn open water rescue techniques and a chance for more experienced paddlers to compare techniques and practice them in a safe environment.  This clinic is important since kayakers need to regularly practice these skills, so they are “fresh” when we get into a real rescue situation.  You want to know how to get yourself or someone else back in their boat quickly and on your first attempt.   Open water paddlers should take this course before attempting any "big water" adventures.

    We will start off each teaching segment by systematically walking through the steps to complete a rescue so that newer paddlers can learn the tricks associated with performing each rescue. After walking through “one way to do a rescue”, we will compare notes and discuss/demonstrate alternative approaches that people may have seen. 

    On Saturday we will go over the full course of rescue skills and techniques.  Afterwards we will chat about what we learned and what we want to learn the next day.  On Sunday we will circle back and finesse these skills, try to fix whatever needs to be fixed, and create scenarios to make these rescues feel real.

    In addition to the on-water training, we will have a Shore Clinic presented by David & Susan Nord. The clinic will focus on kayak and gear maintenance, including emergency boat repair, replacing decklines, finding leaks, buffing scratches, maintenance of hatch covers, care of your drysuit & wooden paddles

     

    Rescue Course Content

    ·       Wet exiting your boat 

    ·       Solo Reentries (Paddle Float, Cowboy, Reenter and Roll) 

    ·       Assisted Reentries (T-Rescue, Stirrup Rescue, Scoop Rescue) 

    ·       Towing - contact tows, short tows, and regular tows. Will discuss when to start towing and when towing may be needed to assist a rescue (I will bring extra tow ropes if you don’t have one.)

    Required Equipment:

    ·       Touring or Sea Kayak - Kayak must have flotation in both bow and stern either sealed bulkheads or flotation bags

    ·       Spray Skirt

    ·       Life Jacket 

    ·       Kayak Safety Gear - Bring the kayak safety gear that you normally carry:  pump, paddle float, stirrup, tow line.   Please do not buy this equipment just for this class since you can borrow from other participants to see what works for you before you buy.

    An Indiana DNR 2022 Non- Motorized Sticker is required for each boat $5 at the gate or can be ordered in advance online

    HCKC Pool sessions at Thatcher are organized to allow HCKC members and guests to learn and practice paddling skills in a safe environment with other paddlers, some of which are ACA certified instructors but we all try to help each other get better and safer for when we venture out to the water!

    We still have COVID restrictions of no more than 15 boats in the water at one time and they have asked (loosely) that we continue to wear masks on the sidelines and in the changing rooms until we enter the water. Although this seems cumbersome at times it is still something the facility has requested of us.

    If you plan on coming and/or bringing your family for instruction or need gear, please let us know so we can be sure to have everything ready! This is a volunteer effort and appreciate your understanding!!
