Rolling Course

Roll up! Roll up!* RCC’s legendary rolling course returns this coming January! Forget resolution lists filled with food-related frivolity and resolve to roll!

The course will introduce you to techniques and exercises to develop an effective white water roll. No rolling experience required.

The course is run over three sessions, and you must be able to attend all of them in order to secure a place. All sessions are at Britannia Leisure Centre, and start promptly at 19:00, finishing at 21:00 on the following Tuesdays: 15 January, 29 January and 12 February.

The cost is £45 for the whole course (all three sessions) – this is to cover pool hire costs and equipment. There are places for 10 students, so sign up as soon as you can – these are very popular courses!

Email rccrolljan19@gmail.com to apply for a place on the course. We will then get back to you shortly to confirm whether you have a place reserved or not, and how to pay.

Please note, this course is only for members who currently can not roll a kayak on flat water. If you can already roll at least most of the time, please attend the regular pool sessions where you can often get help. Even if you attend the course, it is a good idea to practice rolling in your own time too.

We are also looking for volunteers to help. If you are available for all or any of those evenings your help would be very appreciated. You do not need any prior coaching experience, and will not be expected to demo rolling, but should be able to roll on flat water. If you could let us know how keen you are to help (‘help if needed’ or ‘I am well keen mate’) that’d be great.

Roll, roll, roll your boat…
