lesson information

  • Lessons meet at our Boathouse (3010 E Calhoun Parkway, Minneapolis, MN 55408).  Please arrive 10 minutes before the scheduled start time to get signed in.
  • If you have life jackets please bring them.  We have extras available free of charge if you need one.
  • Check weather conditions before leaving home and dress appropriately. We recommend quick-drying clothing with UV protective properties.  Long-sleeve swim shirts, sunglasses, and wide-brimmed hats all help to prevent sunburn and long-term skin and eye damage. Feet will likely get wet. Aqua socks, submersible sneakers, or sandals with a back strap (Teva, Chaco, Keen) are all acceptable. Flip-flops are not allowed. Shoes must be worn at all times.
