DESCRIPTION: (Wear appropriate clothing & bring water!  Below are some special instructions: what to bring, relative difficulties, interesting features, and carpooling directions.)

June 17th – Rolling Coaches’ Workshop

– Instructor – Dave Sibley

Location: Silver Lake. Dover, DE

Class size: about 10 people

Duration: all day.   Bring a lunch, hydration, chair, and whatever else makes you comfortable. Carpooling is encouraged.

Description: This course is intended to share knowledge and technique among people who teach rolling, or who would like to begin teaching. Rather than an instructor/student model, this is a collaborative workshop. We all teach differently and there is a wealth of information to share. We will work in the water and also on land.

Most of us teach the sweep roll, but we will look at other rolls, especially the C-to-C roll. If there’s interest and time, we can look at back deck rolls, hand rolls and some Greenland techniques which can help us to learn and to teach Whitewater rolling. If you have a Greenland stick or hand paddles, bring them. A long skinny displacement hull boat is helpful in learning rolls, especially hand rolls.  Playboats are good for back deck rolls.

Prerequisites: A reasonably reliable pool roll will be helpful. This is not a class to learn to roll. Preference will be given to Wilmington Trail Club instructors, and to people who are already coaching others with their rolls. Active participation is requested; you will be asked to describe and demonstrate your teaching technique.

Helpful learning materials:

Cost: $20 per participant   WTC and ACA membership required.

**( full tuition will be prepaid for all WTC instructors attending the clinic and other WTC members who have regularly coached WTC students)

Details of the day will follow once enrollment is confirmed
