Coached Pool sessions - Winter 2016/17   iCal entry for this event

The club offers blocks of coached pool sessions each winter, with 12 adult and 8 children’s places in each block. Adults will be divided into smaller groups - so that if you are a complete beginner wanting to get a feel for paddling, or hoping to increase your water confidence, or someone determined to perfect your roll - there should be a group suitable for you. As far as possible, the children will also be divided into smaller groups, of similar age and experience.

The pool is booked from 9.15pm until 10.30pm with the coached session lasting from 9.15pm until 10.15pm (10.00pm for the children’s group) so that the coaches have the option of practising skills themselves for the last 15 minutes or continuing to coach until 10.30pm.

We suggest that members arrive by 9.00pm in order to pay, select a kayak and paddle that suits, and check in with the co-ordinating coach/committee member. Please note that left handed paddles are available if required, but may have been put aside, so do ask the co-ordinating coach/committee member. Coaches are identifiable by the red tops they wear. Coaches may also be assisted by experienced paddlers who do not have a coaching qualification. Please note that if you have any medical condition that may be relevant, it is your responsibility to let a coach know.

When booking, please specify whether you are a complete beginner or have some experience of paddling - or if there is something in particular that you would like to work on - as this will help us to match people of similar experience/aspirations.
