COP will again be hosting roll sessions this winter at the Grove City YMCA. This year’s winter roll sessions will run on Sunday evenings 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM on the following dates: December 1st, December 8, January 5th, 12th, 26th, February 2nd , 9th, March 2nd, 9th , March 30th.

The Grove City YMCA is located at 3600 Discovery Drive, Grove City, OH 43123 (Take exit 97 off I-71S (OH-665 and London-Groveport Rd). Turn right / west at London-Groveport Rd/OH-665 (187 ft). Immediately Turn right at Haughn Rd (1.6 mi). Turn left at Orders Rd (0.4 mi). Turn left at Discovery Dr (0.2 mi.).
The charge for members is $7 per session for members and $14 for non-members. Cash or check (payable to COP) is acceptable. Payment must be made at each session for that session.
All boats must be immaculately clean, inside and out, before entry into the aquatic complex. Bringing a boat that dumps leaves and dirt into the pool jeopardizes the sessions for everyone. We were not able to conduct roll sessions this year at some prime facilities because of past practices by inconsiderate participants. Please do not plan to clean your boat at the YMCA facility.
As a safety precaution, all paddlers must wear helmets during the sessions. Also the YMCA strictly prohibits cell phone use in either the restrooms or the locker rooms (grounds for expulsion).
No seal launches are permitted for plastic boats. A few COP whitewater kayaks and paddles will usually be available free of charge at each pool session during January through March for those without boats – call Jim at the number below to confirm availability. No extra COP boats will be available at the November and December sessions – you must bring your own boat to these sessions.
