About Prerequisites
We ask for your cooperation when prerequisites are listed. Prerequisites are one way we can be sure that everyone is in a class that is appropriate for their skill level. For your own safety and out of courtesy for others, please be sure you meet all the listed prerequisites when registering for classes and tours. If you have a question, contact us and we can help.

Prerequisites can also help you figure out your course progression for the weekend. For example, because having a good hip snap makes a rolling class much more successful, boat control classes are a prerequisite for Eskimo Rolling class.






"It was a HUGE benefit. I now have a wonderful base of knowledge to grow from…a huge list of things I can go home and practice. Have a much better understanding of the sport as a whole."
