    HCKC Pool Sessions

    To Sign Up:  Contact Dave Ellis to make sure that some one who you can work with will be there.

    Wednesday Pool Session - 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm:  From Wednesday, April 5, 2016 through November

    These pool sessions are focused on skill refinement and individual practice for all paddlers - whitewater kayakers,  whitewater and open canoeists, recreational kayakers, and sea kayakers - seeking to practice bracing, rolling, open water reentries, etc.   The pool is also popular with freestyle play boaters who want to learn flat water moves such as cartwheels, squirts and stalls and with sea kayakers wanting to refine their roll or work on open water rescues.  It is also a great place to meet other paddlers, find out about upcoming trips, and try out different boats and paddles. Participants often go out for refreshments afterwards to swap paddling stories and watch videos.
