Raft Guide Training 2021 (Two Weekends)

Date: Friday, 13 August 2021
River: Mersey.

It is time for the club's yearly raft guides course!

The course will be 4 days in total run over two weekends (recommend that you attend both). The course is designed so that anyone can attend with a variety of outcomes achievable based on prior experience.

The course will involve lots of hands-on training and assessment, with a large focus point being movement and safety.

The first weekend will be held up on the Mersey river with indoor accommodation at the Arm River campsite. This weekend will focus on introductory movements and hydrology. This will be held on August 13th - 15th.

The second weekend is slightly different and will have a larger focus on safety and bigger water. It will be held on the Mersey and at Woodward's canal. This weekend will be September 17th - 19th.

The cost of the trip along with more specific pans will be organised closer to the date although it is envisaged the cost will be ~$100 for the full course, including accommodate and food, with final costs being release prior to the first weekend.

More information will be provided closer to the date!
