I try to hit mid-week pool sessions as much as possible during the short days. Luckily, we have year round boating here so the weekends are always a chance to get to the river.

Get rid of your desk chair and sit on an exercise ball all winter.
Great for core and balance.

Fort Collins is the best town in the state for winter practice. Kayak polo is Thursday nights from 8-10 and is awesome at keeping you in shape. Google "mountain kayak polo" and you'll find us, or just swing by EPIC just about any thursday night here in the winter.

There are usually two nights a week at Mulberry Pool that are open for practice as well. Sunday nights (starting Feb 2nd, 2014) RMA will be hosting an open pool session from 6:30-8:30pm. Fees are 8.50/night. And then on Wednesday nights local paddlers have gotten together to open the pool for a couple hours, same fees, as well. I would ask Leif or Nathan about the progress on that for '14.

So if you hit all the spots, you can paddle three nights a week in Ft Collins! I don't think any other city in the state does that!

Pool sessions are great, but polo is what's going to help step up your game in the winter. Drop in, first night is free, and we give steep discounts for your first season!
