I just wanted to introduce you to the 2013-14 school year instructor trainees. We just finished 5 days of rescue training and more advanced paddling instruction to prepare them for helping me teach classes in the pool and to help lead the Missouri River Trip in March. These students will be held to the highest standards for performance in the classroom, with their peers and on the river. They have worked hard to earn the right to exemplify the John Glenn Whitewater kayak Club’s expectations for skill and integrity. Thanks to our partners at Jackson Kayak, Astral Buoyancy, Immersion Research and Shred Ready, these students who would not otherwise have the chance now belong to something bigger than themselves.
Thanks so much,
John Glenn Middle School Whitewater Kayak Club
