Intermediate Canoe Poling expands knowledge and skills from flatwater to moving water. The skill of river reading is to include the ability to utilize the full length of the pole in best depth conditions (shallower water) and to utilize slow water in ascending and descending a river.
Activities in this level focus on safety and comfortable poling in moving water up to class II. Naturally, this will require skill refinement, additional skill development and awareness of the environment of moving water.
While there is a great deal to learn at this level, activity should concentrate on progress, skill demonstration and an awareness of the need for future learning.
