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

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

Beginner lessons will also be starting soon in the pool.
