Good start to the pool sessions

Thursday night saw thirteen paddlers in the pool, a great start to this run of five sessions before the beginners training. Nice to see a full pool! Thanks go to Angus for bringing the boats.

If you fancy giving paddling a try, you can now turn up and have a free session. There will be a committee member or delegated individual at the entrance to the pool changing area.

Pool sessions

Pool sessions for all club members begin again on Thursday 6th March. This is your opportunity to practice your skills or try new ones ie: rolling, bracing etc, in the comfort of a warm environment. There will be coaches on hand to advise and assist you if required. The sessions start at 8pm and finish at 9pm at Clickimin pool. Would you please turn up early to help with unloading the trailer and stay afterwards to load trailer. Costs are £5 adult and £3 for junior/concession. The sessions will run every Thursday till the new intake of beginners starts on 17th April. If you have a friend or relation who might be interested in joining the club, bring them along for a night to try it out. (There will be no charge for their first night)
