These sessions are open to all abilities including complete beginners. Advance booking is required at the following link which will open each Thursday at 8am for the following Tuesday:

All you really need to bring is your swimming kit, maybe a spare T-shirt for sitting around on the pool-side and face masks. If you have any of your own kit - 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.  We are required to have our own specific boats for pool use so unfortunately you are not allowed to bring your own in.

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!

 

Children attending must be accompanied by at least one responsible adult. This can be a parent, guardian or named guardian for the day.

We rely on a rota of volunteers to help with admin and coaching soon to be made available.

Please refer to the Pool Session Guidelines and the COVID-19 Pool Session Guidelines for all the important information.

If you think you may have any additional needs with regard to participating in pool sessions, it will be helpful if you can contact us to discuss your needs prior to attending your first pool session. Please email our Equality and Diversity Champion: equality_and_diversity@edinburghkayak.com

Pool sessions cost £10 for adults and £5 for juniors/unwaged.
