If you’re new to rolling and want to get some solid foundations in place then this is the course for you. By splitting the coaching out over 4 sessions 3 hour sessions, you’ll have time to make the most of your practice and coaching.
This bloc of evening sessions aims to help you build your roll from scratch. We’ll spend 4 sessions in the pool, where you’ll receive coaching and plenty of opportunity to practice. Whilst in the pool you can make use of our boats and paddles. If you’d prefer to use your own you’re very welcome to.
We’ll spend a good chunk of time making sure you’ve got the foundations in place to allow you to roll; time spent looking at water confidence, edge and rotation, getting used to the movements that we need put together whilst upside down.
We’ll capture plenty of video to help you connect what you’re feeling with what your body is doing. You’re likely to spend much of the course working in pairs, rescuing, observing and giving feedback to each other. This benefits both the observer and the paddler, and gives you the tools to continue developing your roll after the course.
We’ll finish with a review and a clear plan to help you develop your roll.
If you have them, please bring your own nose clips, earplugs and swimming goggles.
