SheJumps on a roll

From snow to water, SheJumps is all about getting females involved in outdoor activities. This month, the group is focusing on water. SheJumps will hold a women's kayak roll clinic from 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 23, at the Incline Village Recreation Center pool. The rec center is located at 980 Incline Way in Incline Village, Nev.

Experienced kayakers who want to sharpen their skills are also welcome. Women should bring bathing suit, goggles, nose plugs, kayak, skirt, and paddle if you have them. The event is limited to 12 participants. Please RSVP with Meghan Kelly at
