UBC Aquatic centre, heated outdoor pool

Summers: at the beach at the bottom of Tolmie St


The cost of an 2h session is $180.00 and is split between everyone who shows up at the pool on a particular evening. If we get more than 10 folks to come out it should be roughly $18 per person.

free when at the beach

Details about the session

The sessions now have two parts:

  • First Half

For beginners and those wanting to work on specific skills, club members will have time to go over the basics of rolling and some flat water boat handling with direct instruction. For those who just want to get exercise and play, the games can begin right at opening.

  • Second Half

For the second half of the time a larger organized game of polo will be the main focus. Or if the group is big enough then we'll divide things up and have play offs. The Polo part is more fun then you might think, it gets your mind away from over thinking the rolling process and is good practice for working on boat control and balance.

bring a waterproof / windproof coat if you dont have a wetsuit or drytop it should not be too cold but it will be wet (even if it doesn't rain)

Gear Borrowing

I know there are people in the club who boat but who might not be able to come out on a given week so try to borrow/lend gear (it's club spirit) Below is a list that people with boats to lend out can add their names to, ideally with accessories.
