Hi Joe,
Pool session usually start Oct/Nov when the Thursday night sessions have finished up for the year due to lack of daylight. Obviously we have to pay for the pool so we need to know enough people are interested in the pool sessions before we go ahead with them. If people are interested in doing the pool sessions/rolling classes please voice your interest here and we'll get a handle on numbers. Once we have enough interest we can go talk to the pool owners.

Cheers,
Sean

I may be wrong but I think Mick Boylan, Willy Wallis, Danny O'Keefe and Micheal McSweeney are interested in learning to roll.

i know i suggested it to them while in France

And i reckon they'll need more than 5 sessions

As Sean said, pool sessions start around November.

They always run on Friday nights, 8 to 9pm last year in Cobh.

Definitely interested, been meaning to learn for ages now. Any update on this at all or are we hanging on till it it gets darker or is there any chance something could be arranged a bit sooner since theres a good amount of interest?

Its great to see all the interest in this. The usual story is that they begin in Mid October and run for 5 weeks. The first session always has huge interest and then it dies off pretty quick with the club being left to foot the bill for a half empty pool.

The website is currently getting a revamp so any details of it will be both published on the forum and website.

As to it being run a bit earlier, i'd doubt it, solely on the basis that most of the lads instructing in the pool are the same lads that have been at it all year so need a few weeks to rest.

I do not think anything has been finalised with the pool yet so it may not even be Cobh.

Once details are on hand, ye will be first to know.

Members will be given priority, and basing this on the interest shown, if your not a member you won't be getting lessons.

Thanks for that Dave! Up the walls the last few days so havent been on the forum for a while. Agree with everything Dave posted but just to add a comment.

Level 2 River Trips should be kicking off in the next few weeks. If you can do a T-rescue you can start learning to roll. If you miss your roll you can be T-rescued. No better place to learn to roll than on a river where you may need to use it.

Great enthusiasm for learning to roll. Don't forget to work on staying upright so that you don't even need to roll.

It's better to stay upright than having to roll too often.
A few people have laughed at me for saying that but they soon learnt the ways of the alpine rivers Smile

Very true Sean. The roll is the last resort. A good brace is the best defence but I find peoples paddling comes on leaps and bound once they know they can roll. Their not sh*ting themselves that they will turn over so much when they can roll back up.

You may be surprised to hear that there are many different kinds of rolls. As a beginner you may be wondering how you'll manage to learn even one.

Perhaps this video will give you all some inspiration. I present the 'Magnum' Roll. Very Happy
