Beginner Rolling Session 2, Westminster Swimming Pool — 23 August 2022
Nine paddlers teamed up with instructors Simon, Anne, Charlie and Mark helped by assistants, Scott, Andrew and Reg at the Beginner Rolling session at Westminster College pool. After doing some warm up stretches we were into the water and working on the lay-back roll. Several participants were doing their second session and some were there for the first time. With so many instructors and assistants everyone received close personal attention to progress at their own rate. Everyone made great progress with the lay-back roll technique and a couple participants achieved their first roll. The next challenge for them is to try rolling in more real conditions as a pool is seldom the place you fall in unless you play canoe polo!
