West Buckland Pool

The club is fortunate to have access to an indoor swimming pool at West Buckland School. This is an invaluable facility and offers the opportunity for the club to hold regular structured pool sessios throughout the year.

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 West Buckland pool sessions who will be more than happy to offer coaching, guidance and feedback.

When

Pool sessions are held fortnightly at West Buckland School during the winter season between October and April. During the summer months pool sessions tend to continue at West Buckland but on a less frequent basis.

The sessions tend to run on Thursday evenings between 7.30pm and 9.30pm, with each session three blocks:

  • 7:30 – 8:10 – Juniors
  • 8:10 – 8:50 – Seniors – Novice training
  • 8:50 – 9:30 Seniors – Proficient Paddlers

Members can either meet at the pool just prior to the session they are attending or alternatively meet at Rope Walk, Bideford for 6.30pm to share lifts and help arrange and transport club boats and equipment.

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 West Buckland pool sessions who will be more than happy to offer coaching, guidance and feedback.

Please check the trip programme for specific details of future pool sessions.
