ASRC Pool 1800, SW 6th Avenue Portland, OR 97201
Open pool sessions are a chance for kayakers of all experience levels to come work on skills in the safety of the pool. If you're a beginnger this is a great way to get comfortable in a boat, work on basic strokes, and start working towards more advanced skills. For intermediate or advanced paddlers the pool is a great place to master your roll (including your off-side roll, hand roll, etc), play with different types of boats, and strengthen core muscles for the paddling season ahead!
Roll seasons have no formal instruction but if you're a beginner we'll help you get started! The atmosphere is friendly and super chill. Often paddlers are more than willing to help each other out with tips, tricks, and a T-rescue.
Stop by anytime during the session and stay for as long as you want!
HELMETS ARE NOW REQUIRED AT POOL SESSIONS! We will have them available, but they will be required.
Requirements: Ability to perform a wet exit (if you don't know what that is, we'll show you!)
