Learning to Roll (Useful for pool training)
It’s not only your instructors and exec members that can organise trips. We welcome all club members (no matter the experience level) to organise a trip of their choosing. We’ll even give you all the help and support you need to ensure a smooth, safe and enjoyable trip. It isn’t as scary as it may seem!
Here is a guidebook to help you get started on planning a trip and a trip planning template that you'll need to fill out and get signed off by the River Vice President or River Safety Officer:
