Looking for leads on 2022-2023 Pool Sessions (Any Provider)

Recommended Posts

I am looking for Pool Sessions this winter!   (Sea Kayak or White Water, any leads welcome.)

I signed up for the first two sessions with https://www.salemkayak.com/gear-trips-courses/pool-sessions, but I snoozed on signing up for later sessions, and now Kevin's "Practice" offerings are sold out till late March 2023!

Any leads on other providers, and any update on NSPN Pool sessions would be very welcome.

Boston AMC whitewater rolling instructional sessions will be back again this winter.  They have the Arlington Boys’ and Girls’ Club pool reserved from 5-7 pm for five Sundays, February 26 through March 26, 2023. 

NOTE: This is for WHITE WATER kayaks only.  The pool entry path includes a right angle turn which will not accommodate sea kayaks.  However, with advance notice AMC Boston does normally rent kayaks for this event from their fleet.

I don't think registration is up yet, and I am definitely NOT the registrar.   Watch this space: https://amcbostonpaddlers.org/public/white-water/

If you are looking for local inexpensive rolling instruction, this annual event is hard to beat.  If you show up for all five sessions, and are reasonably fit, you are very likely to get your first rolls.  (Then it just takes years of practice to keep and improve them.)  Yes, I have volunteered to be one of the instructors with AMC Boston again this year.
