Mondays and Wednesdays from 8-10pm at St Luke’s pool.
There’ll be a shuttle bus from the bottom of Forum Hill at 7.45pm for the first few weeks of term.
These are relaxed coaching sessions where you can learn and develop skills from more experienced members to put to practice on river trips. Whether you want to learn basic paddling techniques (like moving in a straight line or turning your kayak), important skills for a river (like high/low bracing, edging and rolling) or more advanced playboating tricks (like front-loops), there’s time for everyone.
Towards the start of the year, each pool session will often be focussed on a specific skill – contact Natalie (Training Sec) for more info.
Sometimes we’ll also have polo training pool sessions, where we practise tactics for use in upcoming competitions.
Often after the pool sessions we’ll head to the pub – a great way to get to know other members of the club.
If you’re wondering whether to join the club, come along to a couple of pool sessions for free to try it out – you can start at any point in the year, send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more info.
