Pool Rolling Class | 2 hours | $140 per class

Develop a roll with an ACA instructor in the shallow end of a heated indoor pool.

Sundays (Jan – Apr) 3:30-6:30 pm | Norwalk High School
$140 per class | Equipment not included
$190 per class | Rental equipment included

Our rolling class is catered to meet the needs, limitations, and pace of each paddler. Our instructors work with students in the comfort and safety of the shallow end of a heated indoor pool to help them develop the requisite body mechanics and blade work needed to execute a successful roll. No experience is necessary.

The rolling class is a semi-private offering (one instructor to two students). Most students will need at least two classes, in some cases three, to accomplish an independent, repeatable roll so please manage expectations and plan accordingly. Additional classes can be booked online.

Paddlers bring their own equipment (kayak, skirt, life jacket, and paddle) or equipment can be rented for $50 per session through our online booking system. Our rental equipment includes high-quality, comfortable sea kayaks, neoprene skirts, fiberglass paddles, and lightweight life jackets. Using a properly fitted neoprene skirt and a low-back deck kayak is strongly encouraged.
