Pool sessions

Dear [first-name]
Great news – our pool sessions are back
Notts Kayak Club and HPPCC are delighted that we are once again able to offer paddling sessions at the pool for paddlers who wish to learn to roll, or to recover their roll post lockdown.
Due to the pool imposing restricted numbers, then numbers for all sessions will need to be strictly controlled and all sessions therefore will be pre-book only. A maximum of 24 paddlers and 6 coaches will be permitted in the pool at any time. Spectators will not be permitted unfortunately and therefore parents will need to wait in cars, MacDonalds or Morrison’s cafe.
Bookings for 4 week block sessions before Christmas will open on Wednesday at 8pm (IT willing!)
Bookings will only be allowed for either Block 1 or Block 2 – paddlers will not be able to book slots on both sessions.
Pre-bookings for the single week sessions after Christmas slots will open in December.
Coaches or paddlers who support the pool sessions with coaching, will be able to access free sessions on the16th or 23rd of October where they can refresh their roll, and receive instruction on the standard method of coaching rolling that the two clubs use.
These sessions will need to be booked online.
Please note that single sessions will only be refunded if you cancel at least 5 days before the session. Paddlers who repeatedly book sessions but fail to turn up for the session will be stopped from booking further sessions as it is important that as many paddlers as possible get the opportunity to attend sessions. Block booking sessions will only be refunded if the sessions are resold.
Please don’t book the 4 week sessions if you know you can’t make two of them! We know that demand will be very high for the sessions and we want as many people as possible to get access to them.
The link for booking sessions will be here eola.co/w/1027/activities <eola.co/w/1027/activities>
Please look under the mixed activities tab and you will find the pool sessions.
Our thanks go to all of the paddlers and coaches who will support these sessions. They will look very different this year due to only 24 paddlers and 6 coaches permitted in the water for any session so sessions will be strictly controlled.
Good luck in learning to roll.
Kind regards Dawn
