Pool Training III

Members: Here is some great water safety instruction you may wish to take advantage of. Where: Grandville Middle School 3535 Wilson Ave SW, Grandville, MI, 49418
FREE Pool Session for WMCKA Members!

Yes, that's right. As part of your paid WMCKA Membership, you're invited to attend any ONE of the six[masked] pool sessions FOR FREE!.

All sessions are held at Grandville Middle School from 3pm to 5pm. FREE basic instruction is available for the asking. We do have a limited number of spare boats, so if it's at all possible, it's best if you bring your own, very clean boat (no dirt, mud, sand or leaves).

You must be a current WMCKA Member to use the pool. If you're not a WMCKA member, you can become a member at the pool for $15 ($20/family) and then enjoy your free pool session right away! After you've used up your free pool session, we will ask that you make a donation of $10/person to help pay for the cost of the pool.

As always spectators and kids under 12 are free. You only pay if you get wet.

Want to help us out? Please email Roger Starring (rlstarr@charter [dot] net) if you are interested in helping instruct for about 20-30 minutes in exchange for having the rest of the time free in the pool.

We hope to see you there!

    IMPORTANT!!! POOL SESSION IS CANCELLED!!!
    The school just notified us that the pool is closed. They had an accident (somebody puked in it) and it has to be disinfected before anyone can use it.

    Sorry for the short notice, but I just found out myself (1:00 PM)

    I am looking for some instruction on learning the eskimo roll is this the right place to get that help? If not can you point me in the right direction.

    Be advised that this is NOT intended to be a "class", or specifically for instruction. However, some limited basic instruction is available.

      Just for clarification, if it's not a class could you give us some info on what will be covered. When it said water safety instruction I took it as a class which may have been a bad assumption.

      The purpose of these sessions is to provide practice time. What gets covered for instruction is up to you.

    I currently don't have a boat, so will need to borrow one if there is one available.

    • Brian F B.

      Todd, they'll have a few boats there to use. I may even come to this one.

    Very much looking forward to this. I'll plan to clean out and bring my own boat.
