Our pool kayaking sessions are held at elevation place swimming pool:

2 Thursday's a month from 1830-2030.
These sessions are un-instructed. You attend them at your own risk.
We have a selection of kayaks and paddles available to borrow.

You may wish to bring your own equipment: if so it must be dropped at the fire door of the pool, then you access the building via the main entrance to get changed, then bring the boat through the fire door and hose it down before use.
you do not have to pay admission to the pool; let the desk staff know you are here for the Bow Valley Kayak Club's pool session.

We will be running rolling classes during the pool sessions. These can be a great way to introduce yourself to rolling a kayak, improve your current roll, or find new and different ways to right your boat whilst staying in it.
The sessions are led by our head coach and will have maximum numbers of 6 participants. you can check these out here!

We are very excited to bring kayak polo back to the BVKC once more. We are well set up for it and are now members of the Alberta Canoe Polo Association who have very kindly lent us some goals and balls.
This is the pilot year for us and if this year goes well, we will have subsidies and equipment in the near future! If you are interested in signing up to the polo season please contact us. you can find the sign up here!

Join us at Elevation Place in Canmore for our pool session's. The 2 hour pool sessions are a great place to work on your roll and paddling skills in warm water. Club members will be present to help beginners with wet exits and you can request instruction (subject to availability) to get started or for advanced skill development. All gear is provided for the pool sessions. You are also welcome to bring your own equipment. We recommend you bring a nose plug!
