Introduction to Slacklining
Have you ever seen someone walking a tight line and wondered how they do that? This class will teach you how. Slacklining is an activity that involves balancing, walking, and doing a wide variety movement on a tensioned line about q foot above the ground. It was developed as an activity to promote balance and pass time in climbing campgrounds but has since become an activity of its own. In this course, you will learn how to safely set up and use a slackline under the careful instruction of COE's climbing staff. Classes will take place at various outdoor locations, so participants should come prepared to be outside for the length of the class. Dressing in layers and comfortable shoes will allow participants to shed layers to adjust to the activity level and temperature of the day. No experience necessary.
Courses are open to everyone. Students can enroll on Student Center. Anyone may also enroll by contacting Amy Woodin:
