In these sessions we shall be looking at

  • practising existing rolls
  • beginning to roll
  • refining or fine tuning a roll
  • learning different rolls outside of our comfort
  • mixture of techniques for starting out with freestyle

We are also deliberately reducing the numbers (with increased cost) down to ensure you get the maximum time and space to practise. You may want to share the space with a buddy or partner to help spot each other for the session, if so that is fine just book one space between the two of you if you are not both going to be in the water the whole time.


The club is now open to everyone of all competency levels; should the Covid-19 situation change the club may have to return to placing a minimum competency level upon participants. Should this happen participants shall be expected to self-assess at what stage they can suitably participate. The club may increase or decrease the stage at any point so please check back against the event or guidance to check the stage before arriving at your activity. See our COVID-19 Guidance for more details on the club's different reopening stages.
