Location:  TBD Naperville area
Skill Level:  Instructor and Trip Leader

This workshop is ideal for both long-time and potential trip leaders, instructors, and anyone else wanting to develop greater skill organizing and safely leading groups on the water.

Examples of topics of focus include:

  • Pre-trip planning
  • Pre-launch group management
  • Participant and leader expectation management
  • Instructional models
  • Group abilities
  • Environmental awareness
  • On-Water group management
  • Risk assessment, incident avoidance and management
  • Communication on and off the water
  • Positioning
  • Dealing with the unexpected
If you're looking for three hours of war stories about how Cousin Eddie got pinned on that nasty rock, this isn't the place. Just practical stuff you can use to lead your first, or 100th trip.

This program will be held indoor at a location in the Naperville area and will precede the PSC Pool Party at Naperville North High School. Please make a day of it by joining us for both programs.
