KCCNY Union Pool Sessions 2018-2019 

ool sessions are a great way to sharpen your paddling skills or learn the Eskimo roll. These sessions are held at the Union Boy's and Girl's Club Pool in Union, NJ from 11:00 a.m to 1:00 p.m. on December 9 and 16, 2018 and on January 6, 13, 20, and 27, February 3, 10, 17, and 24, March 3, 10, 17, 24, and 31, 2019

This facility is open to white water kayaks and canoes and longer boats by permission*.  PFD's and helmets are required in the pool. We always have volunteer instructors at the pool sessions to help with basic whitewater kayak skills, with particular emphasis on the kayak roll.

Participants are expected to provide their own boat, paddle, helmet, spray skirt, and PFD. The club does not own any equipment but may be able to arrange for borrow boats and gear if arrangements are made several days in advance. (Contact Dan Kirsch at dkirsch@kirschandkirsch.com ).

We want to be kid friendly, and hope all parents join as members of KCCNY and take advantage of the lowest rates. 

An Adult KCCNY member can bring children to the pool for a single low fee of $5. That's one easy child fee to cover all kids under the supervision of that adult member, including minors that are not your children. So one $15 adult member fee + one $5 child fee = $20 to get a mess of your kids and their friends rolling and winning! Additionally anyone that is not an ACA member needs to pay the ACA $5 insurance day fee to use the pool 

Make it a full season family event! Now you can purchase a full season pass that will include all family members for a substantial discount from individual session charges.

 *For more information, or any questions, email Dan Kirsch at dkirsch@kirschandkirsch.com You should also check our club website at www.kccny.com for complete details about the pool sessions and special requirements for bringing kids.

Member price applies to members of KCCNY, HRCKC, Mohawk, and Hackensack Riverkeeper.   

All participants will be asked to enter a valid American Canoe Association membership number as part of the registration process.  If you do not have an ACA number, you can join the ACA on line and bring your membership number with you to the event.  You will also have the opportunity to purchase a $5.00 ACA single event membership at the pool session.

All participants must sign an ACA waiver form on an annual basis.  Forms will be available at the pool session, but you can save time by downloading the form from the ACA or KCCNY website and bringing it to the pool session.
