Clinic Fee: $50 (includes 10 feet of webbing, 6 feet of prussic cord and 1 carabiner)

You must be a member of WVWA to participate in the clinic.
Some whitewater paddling experience is preferred because it helps students relate to issues that can occur on the river.
Day 1 will cover rescue organization, swimming, wading, and the use of throw bags and rescue life vests.
Day 2 will cover boat unpinning, anchors, Z-drags, in-boat entrapment, foot entrapment, and various rescue scenarios.
