2015 - Open House

UAPS Open House!

This is a free opportunity to come out and try kayaking with Alberta’s fastest growing whitewater kayak club! Invite your friends, your family, and anybody else you think might enjoy whitewater kayaking with UAPS! Experienced paddlers will be on hand to help get you into a boat and show you the skills you will develop as a kayaker.

No skill or equipment is needed, just a swimsuit and a desire to learn how to kayak!

Winter Open Sessions

Winter Open Sessions

Tis the season to keep your skills sharp by coming to the weekly Open Sessions! While we wait for the rivers to thaw, this is where we gather and practice.

Our Open Sessions are the backbone of our club. For the new club member, this is where you get to know who’s who. For the beginner, this is the perfect opportunity to practice all the skills you’ve picked up at your Basics Course or Roll Clinic.


WEM Wavepool Session (Dec. 16, 2014)


WEM Wavepool Session!!

It’s that time of year again. We have a wavepool session booked. For those new to the club, it’s a great time to try your skills on moving water; for those of you who haven’t been out since mid August, it’s a chance to fail your roll with mall patrons watching.

Due to our busy Scona schedule our upcoming wavepool session will be occurring on December 16th, 2014 from 7pm to 9:30pm (waves on from 7:30pm to 9:30pm.) The cost is $30 for current club members, or $40 for non-members. If you need a rental boat and/or any equipment the cost of the rental is included in the fee. Just make sure to contact our equipment manager Dan well in advance to make arrangements. We will deal with logistics of the rentals in December. If you have your own gear, be sure to bring your helmet and PFD. These are part of the deal.

If you have any questions or would like to sign up, please drop us a line on our facebook page. All skill levels, from beginner to Tristan, are welcome. This thing always fills up fast so make up your mind early.
