Pool Session Details

What: SDCKA Pool Session
When: Saturday, May 17th @ 11:30am
Where: Downtown YWCA in Sioux Falls
Why: To practice safety techniques, wet exits and rolling

What to bring:
  • Clean (inside & out) kayak
  • PFD
  • Paddle
  • Spray skirt (if you have one)
  • Dry clothes / Water clothes
  • goggles, nose plugs or any other underwater device that you prefer

Please park on Dakota Avenue (see map below) and enter through the back alley door (also see map). Jarett or I will be at the YWCA around 11:15 to make sure that the door is open. If you'd like to drop your boat off next to the door and then park, that is fine with the Y. There is open swim/lessons until noon, but we'll want to maximize our two hours by getting boats-on-deck as that ends.
Parking along the street is free on weekends.

Due to the tiles around the pool area, metal/aluminum canoes are not allowed.

The pool is very large and will easily fit 5 + boats in the water at a time. Everyone will get plenty of time to practice up.

The pool temp is currently at 85 degrees - and it slopes from 4 feet to 10 feet. We will have 4 lanes to work in.
