The WKTF is a massive Whitewater Kayaking Training Facility set in Urbanovsky Park, on the campus of Texas Tech University. The training facility is conceived to be a part of a large scale "National Aquatics Training Academy" creating a mini campus of aquatic venues within the larger community in which it resides. The facility uses a state of the art adjustable obstacle system capable of replicating any whitewater scenario. The 2.6 million-gallon lagoon is designed to speed the training process by keeping the athletes in their kayaks, eliminating the time wasted on numerous trips upstream.
