Fort Collins pool sessions

I've heard that the Mulberry pool isn't allowing kayak pool sessions this year or next. Is this true? If so, where else would be a good option?

Unfortunately as of right now there aren't any roll session scheduled in 2016-2017. The pools' policies have changed, and now we essentially have to rent the pool ahead of time at roughly $70/hr. We are evaluating a few options to try to get pool time, but nothing is going to be ironed out any time soon. The squeeze isn't just hitting us. I spoke with folks from RMA yesterday, and they're not planning on hosting any sessions either (we did wednesday, they did sundays).

Making things more challenging, session attendance has significant reduced for both wednesdays and sundays.

The good news is we do have some options. One of the options we're looking at is having people pay for a month's worth of pool sessions at a time up front. if we could get enough folks to do sign up, we could then have the sessions. Drop ins would still be welcome those weeks, but they would obviously still need to pay.

Another path we're working on is teaming up with the polo club, and using the smaller pool that they don't use, and then splitting the costs. I'm not sure how well this might work, but i definitely think it's worth exploring.

If we do get session this year, we'll likely see the following changes:
- shorter sessions
- slight increase in pool fees
- reduced number of sessions

If anyone has ideas, i'm definitely open to suggestions.

I'd pay up front for 4 weeks worth of sessions. Also would be happy to split it with the polo group as long as everyone would still have time and room to practice skills as they see fit.
