New Dates Announced for Winter Roll Practice at UTC!

 

TVCC Winter Roll Practice at UTC’s Aquatic Recreation Center (ARC) has been a huge success!  As a result, we are expanding the schedule by adding 4 more dates!  Here is our current schedule with the new dates shown in red.   ** Hint:  It’s always a Tuesday and it’s always from 7-9 PM. **

 

  • February 6th (Session 3A)
  • February 13th (Session 4)
  • February 20th (Session 5)
  • March 20th (Session 6)
  • April 3rd (Session 7)
  • April 10th (Session 8)
  • April 17th (Session 9)
  • May – TBD We plan to add dates in May based on interest and finances.  Stay Tuned!

 

How popular has roll practice been?  Consider this:  We have now held 3 sessions and the attendance has grown each time – from 34 to 42 to 64 paddlers most recently on 23 January.  The pool and facilities are awesome.  

 

We don’t want to have to restrict attendance, so we ask for (need?) your help on a couple important issues to keep this a smooth running and safe event:  

Reminder about TVCC-UTC POOL Rules of engagement {ROE)

  1. Please consider (strongly) pre-registering for the roll sessions you want to attend at the TVCC Website.  This really helps.  Paying at the door is OK, but slows in-processing for everyone.  We accept cash, checks, and credit cards.
  2. Be patient!  The check-in process is what it is, and we will improve it, but your patience helps.  Everyone must fill out 3 waiver forms and pay any fees if not pre-registered.  Form a line and stay in it.  We generally can handle 6 at a time.  We open 30 minutes before pool opens which is plenty of time to get everyone through.  Help us help you!  Everyone has been great so far and we appreciate it!
  3. Please CLEAN your boat before coming to the pool.  That means taking your air bags out and rinsing the inside thoroughly.  We don’t want to lose our pool privileges because we contaminated the UTC pool!  UTC has equipment you can borrow if necessary and arrive early enough to grab what you need.
  4. Helmets must be worn while in the pool. There are a lot of paddlers and paddles wilding swinging around.  No problem bringing your kids to play while you roll, but please put them in a helmet.
  5. Be gentle with UTC’s pool.  Boofing off the coping or hard entries and exits from the pool may damage the tile work.  Exercise caution when trying out your gnarly dynamic moves.
  6. Please don’t stiff us the pool or ACA fees.  TVCC is paying UTC to use their pool and we pay ACA to make sure everyone is covered by insurance under our plan.  This is a great deal so let’s keep it that way.  ‘Nuff said.
