Above, 11-year-old Thorin Rampton asks instructor Craig Allen a question during a Chilliwack Centre of Excellence (CCE) paddling session at Cheam Leisure Centre on the weekend.

The CCE Paddling Club is hosting kayaking pool sessions at the Cheam Leisure Centre on Sunday mornings from 8:30 to 10 a.m. These sessions run until the end of March, and will focus on differing themes each week: youth paddlers, water polo, and rolling techniques.

Club equipment is available, and the boat trailer is on site by 8 a.m. — show up early to get your gear and maximize pool time with your friends. A CCE coach will be in the water every Sunday.

The cost is $10 per session for youth paddler and water polo, and $15 per session for rolling techniques. Register at www.chilliwackcentreofexcellence.sportical.com/events.

Check the CCE website at www.ccekayak.com for membership and up-to-date information on what is scheduled for each Sunday.

Beginner lessons will also be starting soon in the pool.
