Sebago Canoe Club will be sponsoring kayak pool sessions again this year
at the Flushing Meadows Corona Park Aquatic Center.
They will take place every Sunday from Noon to 2:00PM starting on
December 7th and continuing until the last Sunday in April.
It is open to all paddlers, Sebago CC membership is not required.
This is for ALL skill levels, including beginners.
It is for people who would like to practice kayak and possibly canoe
skills. There will be skilled paddlers to help you work on what ever you
like or work on nothing at all.
You do not have to own a kayak nor have any experience.
We will bring as many kayaks as we can car-top and we will all take
turns. There will mostly be sea kayaks, but white water and
others can be brought as well.
We'll be practicing beginner to advanced skills and/or just have fun
messin' around in boats.
RSVP IS REQUIRED, preferably by email, at the bottom of this page. The earlier the better, we do have a limit.
Also, please notify me if you will be canceling.
The cost is $20 per person. No cost if you just want to watch.
There is an additional ACA insurance fee for those that aren't already ACA members.
Seabgo members are already ACA members.
The ACA is allowing a one time $10 introductory membership good for all ACA activities for the next 6 months. Or you can just pay an individual
fee of $4 for a single event participation.
We'll be washing the boats out thoroughly before they get in the pool. A
hose will be provided.
For those meeting at the Sebago Canoe Club to load boats and car pool,
we will meet at at 10:00 AM. Others meet at the rear of the pool before 11:30AM to help move/prep boats and get ready for our time slot.
Please be on time as it takes away from other peoples pool time if your late.
*Changes this year*
Swim caps will be worn by all this year. There will probably be loaners available courtesy of Phil Giller.
We will usually be limited to 12 people per session and will only have 6 boats in the pool at one time.
So we will all be taking turns.
The diving pool will not be available on most days this year.
