Come and Try sessions at Crooklog pool on Wednesday evenings 2015 -2115
26th February 2020 @ 8:00 PM - 9:30 PM
We are now running regular Come and Try sessions at Crooklog pool on Wednesday evenings 2015 -2115!
These are an opportunity to see the facilities we have, meet members of the club and of course, try paddling.
On arrival at the club you’ll be registered and given a safety briefing, usually performed by one of the club’s experienced coaches. Any participants who are not water confident or unable to swim are welcome but should email firstname.lastname@example.org before booking a session.
Next you’ll be allocated a set of paddles, then shown the kayak you’ll be using and given a brief overview of how it works. The kayak will then be set up to fit you to ensure you’re comfortable.
You’ll then be taken to the water and helped into the kayak and a member of the club will be assigned to give you supervision on the water, Please note this is not an hour of dedicated instruction but we will ensure that you are safe and having fun.
The kayaks we use at these sessions are designed for white water paddling so they are extra safe in the pool.
You’ll need to bring whatever you would normally wear when swimming at the pool and many people choose to add a Tshirt that they don’t mind getting wet. You are very likely to get wet so don’t forget a towel and a change of clothes and you’re welcome to use the shower facilities after your session. Participants under 16 will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult to the session but they can remain on the side if they wish. Participants under 10 will need to be accompanied by a responsible adult to the session who will also be taking part alongside them.
You can attend more than one taster session up to a maximum of three, these sessions are designed to give you a taste of paddling before you book yourself on a course
We ask that you arrive at the pool 20 minutes before the session start time this will allow you time to get changed, fill in a guest membership form which is necessary for insurance reasons and to be fitted with your kayak.
