It all depends on weather conditions, but throughout the year, the lessons are carried on outside in water, during the winter though, we go to the gym for a little work out and once in 14 days we visit a swimming pool in Suchdol in order to practice Eskymo turnovers and swimming. We organize a camp for the beginners during the main summer school holidays. For the advanced racers we organise more events throughout the year. In winter we also organize a ski trip.
