Pool & Lake Sessions

Pool sessions are offered at the University of Washington's Hec Ed pool most Sundays during fall, winter, and spring quarters (check the club calendar for specific dates). For the 2009-2010 school year pool sessions are 8:30-11:30 am.

During summer quarter practice sessions take place sporadically (no official weekly schedule) and are held on Lake Washington at the Waterfront Activities Center (WAC). The times and dates of upcoming lake sessions for the summer are posted to the club calender.
These sessions are a great way to get introduced to kayaking and the club's activities.  Many basic kayaking skills can be most effectively taught in the pool, including strokes, edging, bracing and rolling.

New members are required to attend a pool or lake session before they participate in any other club event.  If you are attending your first pool session please make sure you have first joined the club.  Then simply show up at the WAC at 8:30, with appropriate pool clothing.  Plan to stay though the entire session to receive a briefing on club procedures at the end of the session.
