Adaptive kayaking provides health, healing, and new challenges for individuals with physical disabilities and visual impairments. Skills are taught through a step-by-step approach beginning in the pool and progressing to flat water on the James and eventually to whitewater for the more adventurous!

Sportable’s kayaking program allows participants to learn and practice basic paddling, kayak rolls, rescue skills, braces, wet exits and more in the pool with our ACA Certified Instructors and volunteers before getting out on the open waters of the James River.
