Spring is a great time to get your paddling skills tuned up before hitting the rivers when they are cold, high, and swift after breakup.
There are several opportunities to practice your skills, work on your roll, and have fun with other paddlers at local swimming pools.
- Saturdays: 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the Alaska Club, Fairbanks South – $4 pool fee
- Sundays: 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. at Patty Pool, UAF Student Rec Center – $5 pool fee
- Mondays: 7:00 – 9:00 p.m. at Hamme Pool, Lathrop H.S. – $6 pool fee
If you bring your own boat, please be sure to clean out all the silt, sand, leaves and rodent nests before bringing it. You can give it a final rinse with hoses provided poolside.
If you can’t bring your own boat, contact Alaska Dream Adventures in advance at (907) 460-2909. They offer boats and gear at no extra charge and also offer lessons upon request.
