Training Trips are continuing education for paddle school students. They differ from regular club trips in that, though no formal instruction takes place, the trips will have sufficient support boaters to assist in skills development. Feel free to ask questions or for help with something as that is why we are there. We encourage you to join in on regular club trips as well, and in some of the listed community service activities and the Rescue Rodeo (whitewater). The white water trips will primarily increase in intensity as the summer progresses, culminating in an Ocoee first-timers trip.
Students wishing to participate in a training trip MUST contact the trip coordinator by the Wednesday prior to trip.
For weekends where there are trips scheduled for both Saturday and Sunday there will be the opportunity to camp together as a group near the rivers. If you'd like to join the fun please contact Teri @ (423) 837-9292 or via email Webmaster@TVCCpaddler.com for details.
*Denotes Community Service Activity or other activity - all newbies welcome!
**The Lesser Wesser is a special training trip which focuses on running Nantahala Falls. In order to participate in this trip, you must have attended at least two of the Nantahala training trips.
***Both the Ocoee Sampler and Ocoee First Timers trip will meet at 10am at the lower (private boater) takeout.
