Weekly Meetings

The club meet at one weeknight per week. For the 'summer' (the first Wednesday in May through to the last Wednesday in August inclusive) the club meets at Musselburgh Lagoon every Wednesday evening (except last Wednesday every month, see below). For the 'winter' (the first Tuesday in September through to the last Tuesday in April inclusive), we meet indoors for pool sessions. See here for more details on the locations.

Pool Sessions

The club holds its weekly winter pool sessions on Tuesday evenings at Gracemount Leisure Centre between 8:00pm and 10:00pm (from the first Tuesday in September through to the last Tuesday in April inclusive), usually followed by a drink in a local pub. All you really need to bring is your swimming kit and maybe a spare tee shirt for sitting around on the pool-side. If you have any of your own kit - boat, buoyancy aid, spray deck, helmet or paddles - feel free to bring it along though please ensure it is all clean. Otherwise, you will be able to borrow any kit you require. There is enough room for eight boats in the pool at a time so we run a system of 20 minute 'slots'. We rely on members bringing along enough boats each week and generally have enough, but the more the merrier. If you would like to bring along your own boat please feel free, though please ensure it is scrupulously clean - going as far as removing the air bags to hose out any crud trapped behind them.

There is always at least one qualified coach at each pool session both for safety and to provide assistance so it's usually possible to get some coaching in the pool - just ask!

Pool sessions cost:
Adults £6.00 (Un-Paid Member) £4.00 (Paid Member)
Juniors/Unwaged £3.00 (Un-Paid Member) £2.00 (Paid Member)

A full list of guidelines for use of the pool is available here.

Pond Sessions

For the 'summer' months of May through August we meet outdoors on Wednesday evenings, mainly at Musselburgh Lagoons (the first Wednesday in May through to the last Wednesday in August inclusive) from 7:00pm through 'til 9:00pm or so.

Lagoons sessions cost:
Adults £5.00, Juniors/Unwaged £3.00

On the last Wednesday of the month though, we organise an alternative trip details of which will be communicated via the SSPPP forum.

We bring along the club trailer (except the last Wednesday of the month) with all the club's boats and kit for folks to use, but there is usually a great deal of demand for this so please bring your own kit if you have any. We rely heavily on a rota of volunteers to load and unload the trailer and to tow it to the lagoon, if you can help out at all please get in touch via the SSPPP forum or email.

There will be at least one coach on duty.

Please note children attending the pool, lagoon or a river trip must be accompanied by at least one responsible adult. This can be a parent, guardian or named guardian for the day..
