Skill Development with a Splash!

Prospect clients started their week off with a splash in the Watersports program! With leadership and expertise from the students in the Ecotourism and Outdoor Leadership program at Mount Royal, we kayaked through the pool with ease.

Kayaking can be an intimidating sport, but also provides us with a myriad of opportunities to develop important skills.  Through the Watersports program clients work to develop sport related skills such as: water safety and awareness, balance, propulsion, directional control and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.   With guidance and support from Prospect staff and our community partners, our group of keen kayakers also work to develop important essential skills such as: effective communication and teamwork, emotional recognition and regulation, task initiation and completion, responsibility, and more!

This program would not be possible without the generous support of our community partners. A special thanks to Aquabatics Calgary for providing kayaks for our clients and staff, and to SAIT Athletics and Recreation for providing us water to practice our skills on during the Winter months.
