Roll Lesson with Cross Currents at the Catonsville YMCA

ROLL LESSON WITH CROSS CURRENTS AT THE CATONSVILLE YMCA

Please read everything carefully BEFORE you RSVP or your RSVP will be rejected.  RSVP's Open Thursday, January 9th at 9:30 PM.

This is for a formal roll lesson with a certified instructor.  The roll lessons are one hour long and are limited to 6 people each session.  There will be a ratio of 1 instructor to 3 students.

You'll be doing the roll lesson for the first hour and then have the second hour free.  However, we may throw in some fun games during that second hour during some of the sessions. (Ever do kayak limbo or play kayak jousting?)

After each session we will head to one of several different watering holes/restaurants in the Catonsville area.

The total cost for the roll lesson is $10 for the pool, $5 for insurance and $35 for the actual instruction which brings the total to $50.00.  Check what others are charging and I think you'll discover this is about half the price of the least expensive alternatives.

YOU MUST ANSWER THE QUESTIONS AND PROVIDE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS WHEN YOU RSVP OR YOUR RSVP WILL BE REJECTED AND YOUR SPOT WILL BE GIVEN TO SOMEONE ELSE.  Your email address is required so Cross Currents can send you a PayPal invoice for the charges.

 

There will not be a wait list for any of these sessions.  RSVP's will typically open 30 days before the event.  You will be invoiced once you RSVP.  There will be no refunds but if you let us know you won't be able to attend more than 3 days before the lesson you can apply the cost to other instructional offerings from Cross Currents through the 2014 season.  If you let us know you won't be able to attend less than 3 days in advance you will forfeit the payment.

Please see the other Meetup on the same date for spots to use the pool on your own ($15.00 total) or you can take a rescue skills lesson ($35.00 total).  You can not RSVP for the pool time or rescue skills on this listing.

      I will see you there! I just signed up also, and have forwarded the info to Liz.

      sounds good. the extra length of the lessons and that you get committed to three consecutive weekends i think helps really put you over the top. we can also work together to get more out of the pool time (e.g., giving one-another a bow while the instructor is tied up with other students)

    Howard,

    Did Lee District allow you to bring your own kayak?

    February 10, 2014

    • Rita

      It gave me a choice of renting a kayak or bringing my own.

      February 10, 2014

      in the first session i rented. they put you in white-water kayaks. but others brought their own boat. given the weather, i originally did not want to be committed for having to car-top my boat.....but i feel more confident in March and i want to focus on ensuring the skills work for the boat i actually paddle.

    rita, i finally did it. this morning i continued lessons at the Lee Rec center in Alexandria VA. i bought three weekends of rolling lessons (3 hours per session...or 9 hours) and did my second one today (one more next sunday). the cost was about $80. in today's session i got it going after about 30 minutes and then did 50 unassisted roles in the remaining time before calling it a day. http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/parks/parktakes/ they may still have session.
    large olympic size pool....so you can stretch out and paddle between roles

      Yay Howard!!! Congratulations!! I will look into the Fairfax sessions. I think if I had been able to take a lesson again today I would have my roll back. I felt very close last night.

    I'm starting to get that feeling back again! Just wish I could practice several days in a row.

    Hey Stacey, I could have sworn I saw you on the attending list because I noted that we would be working on rolls together??

      It's not my first class. I had to take an immersion therapy session in between though. Apparently I don't like being trapped upside down underwater in my boat. I figure it may take me a few more classes.

      I had signed up for this one and the next - after going to my first in Jan. I'm just going to keep signing up until I get it, run out of money, or they bar me because they're tired of trying to teach me :-).

    I am having a breast biopsy on Wednesday and may not swim or use my chest/arm/core muscles on Saturday, so I am canceling. Someone else gets in - yeah! Luckily I snagged a slot for the 1 March session. And hopefully I have not hit the cancer daily double.

      Hi Mary, Good luck - they often come back negative. I went through that in 2012 and was positive but in an early stage and came through it with flying colors. Happy to chat anytime if you would like - hopefully you won't need to :-)

      I'm a 6 year survivor! Even the bad news isn't so bad with today's medical advances. But hopefully your test will be negative.

    Stacey if you come across someone who likes being trapped upside down under water in their boat please refer them to me... I need the business and they need help!

    Hey Chuck, I am pretty sure I paid 2014 - but my profile doesn't reflect it. Would you please double check? Thanks!

    February 3, 2014

  • Stacey

    OK, NOW I'm going on this date!

  • Cathy N

    If a spot opens up, I would love to move over to this one.

    Maybe second time's a charm :-)
