It might be snowing outside, but Zoar Outdoors gets you into the water with six indoor kayak clinics. Designed for novice to intermediate paddlers, C-1ers, and OC-1ers, classes cover the execution of basic skills such as strokes, leans, and braces. American Canoe Association certified instructors also teach the basics of rolling a kayak, from hip snaps to paddle motions to a full-blown Eskimo roll. Experienced rollers work on improving technique, flipping without setting up, learning an offside roll, hand roll, and other variations. Zoar supplies boats, paddles, life jackets, helmets, and wet suits, but you may bring your own. Boys and Girls Club of Greater Westfield, Feb. 2, 9, 16, Hockomock Area YMCA in Franklin, April 6, 13, 20. 6-8 p.m. $80.  800-532-7483, www.kayaklesson.com/winter_rolling.htm
