White Water Club

Are you a water person or just adventurous? There’s a club at Hocking College that could be for you. The Whitewater Club was formed to bring river enthusiasts together as well as form new bonds by turning others on to the fun and excitement of whitewater. Even if you aren’t in to the crazy whitewater we are very committed to turning others on to the paddling community, no matter where (lake, ocean, or river). There are also many types of craft to get you on the water, depending on your personality. A raft, for the person who wants to get out with a group of family or family or friends, or perhaps you may want a professional to guide you safely down a river. A canoe, for one or two people looking for a quite float on a lake or a lively ride down a river. Lastly, a kayak for the person who prefers to control their own adventure.

We hold kayak roll sessions for those wanting to learn to right a kayak (the “Eskimo roll”) or if you would just like to learn to paddle in a controlled environment. Our roll sessions are on Monday evenings from 6:30- 8:30 in the pool at the student center (free to Hocking College students). This is also the time we meet for the club. The club also sets up trips to get out and paddle. We are always looking for new members, so stop by and let us know what you’re interested in.
