The winter training programme 2020/2021

Please find the 2020/2021 Winter Training Programme. It will commence on 12th October.

The attached schedule shows both junior and adult sessions, who is running them and where ie hall, ergos or on the water. The juniors will already know from their coach who and how many can attend. If, due to Covid-19, this changes at all, your coach will let you know.

As for the adult sessions – on the water and circuits – these will run like the summer sessions ie Please sign up on the Club Access sheet. This is essential. There is a separate tab for each. This will inform you how many may attend each session and if there is space. There is also a tab for ergo use. However, for Nigel’s coached ergo sessions, it will run as in previous years, with allocated places. You will have seen Nigel’s note about it earlier today on Facebook, hopefully.

For all the most up to date Covid-19 information and protocols for each activity, please go to tab top right.

That includes new procedures for attending sessions in the hall and ergo use, as well as using the showers. Please ensure you read the relevant documents and refamiliarise yourself with the document on gym usuage too.

We have now set up a QR code, signs for which are around the club. Please do use this to sign in, BUT always use the Club access sheets as well. This is essential for our main track-and-trace mechanism.

Please remember the current social distancing rules, keep washing your hands regularly and don’t come to the Club if you are feeling unwell at all. And remember as colder, winter conditions arrive, to wrap up warmly, paddle safely and within your ability. If the river is on red (see the notice at the top of the stairs at the club), you may ONLY go out in Club equipment with a Level-2 or 3 coach. If the river is on amber, you still need to take a great deal of care and preferably go out in a group of three.

Happy paddling.
