The club holds frequent pool sessions and is fortunate to have access to an indoor pool at West Buckland School.
Pool sessions offer the opportunity to practice and learn skills in a comfortable and safe environment. The club generally has coaches or experienced paddlers on hand at the pool sessions who will be more than happy to offer coaching, guidance and feedback.
During the winter season (October to April) the formal club sessions run every two weeks at West Buckland and members are also welcome to joint Bude Canoe Club at their sessions in Holsworthy. In the summer, pool sessions tend to continue at West Buckland but on a less frequent basis. Details of future pool sessions can be found on the trip programme.

You are welcome to bring along your own boats and equipment to use at the pool sessions however please ensure that it is all spotlessly clean or else it will not be allowed in the pool. Personal boats must also have their airbags removed.
It is possible to make use of club boats and equipment at the pool sessions however it is important that you get in touch in advance to arrange for appropriate equipment to be made available. Please note that it may be necessary for you to arrange to transport any borrowed club boats and/or equipment from the club store in Bideford to and from the pool session.
