 WKC Pool Sessions

Kayak Pool Play provides an opportunity for beginning, intermediate, and advanced paddlers to practice skill development and safety techniques within the controlled environment of an indoor pool.  Currently, there are pool sessions in Shoreline, Tukwila, and Tacoma locations on Sundays and Wednesdays during the fall, winter, and spring months. The pool sessions run from October to April so check the calendar for times and dates.

About Pool Sessions:

These pool sessions are for individual practice, and do not include instruction;  however, there are always folks there willing to help out if you're working on your roll, need some pointers, or just someone to spot you.

There is always a hose just outside the door, and we ask that you clean your boat off thoroughly before bringing it inside.

While the pool sessions are primarily for members, guests are welcome.  WKC insurance requires that participants sign a waiver at the pool.  You will also be asked to sign in on our event roster.  It has spaces for name, phone number,  emergency contact information, and a place to check whether you're paying the WKC member or guest fee.  Please be sure to check off the appropriate boxes so the pool coordinator doesn't have a mess to sort out later.  It gets pretty busy and it's easy for them to miss little details like that.


Session Fees:

WKC Members         $10

Non-members          $15

One year membership through the WKC is $35 for individuals, $40 for families.  You can join the club at the pool session, or online.
