><> ><> Snacktics <>< <><

Posted 1mth 24d ago by James Hickmott

Ciao all,

 

Seeing as we're almost at the end of our taster sessions, it's now time for a snacktics session. For those who have never been, it's a relaxed session where we will be discussing the various rules of canoe polo, as well as a few basic tactics commonly used in the game. This is an excellent opportunity for anyone new to the sport to hopefully help you have a better idea of what's going on in a game as we are fully aware it may seem quite daunting to anyone who's never played. as a bonus, there will also be free snacks for everyone to enjoy throughout!

The session will be held in S0.20 (Social sciences building) from 19:15-20:00 next week on Tuesday the 18th, afterwards, we will then all head over to the pool session where we can hopefully try out some of the things we discuss.

Looking forward to seeing you all there!

 

Polo love,

James and all the exec

<>< Freshers Whitewater Trip!<><

Posted 1mth 28d ago by Sam Pfeffer-Matthews
Hey all!
 
It’s been so good to see all the new faces at our taster sessions so far. There’s still another week of completely free sessions so come on down when you can!
But now it's time to start introducing you to moving water! In a couple weeks, 21th – 23rd October (end of week 3), we will be heading to South Wales for two days of brilliant paddling, departing on Friday evening. It promises to be a great weekend and is a fantastic place to start your whitewater journey. Don’t worry if you’ve never paddled outside before, this trip is geared towards beginners!
 
Signups open next Thursday at 12:00 so make sure you head over to: warwickcanoe.uk/site/trips to sign up. It’s best to have made your account on the website in advance as places go very quickly!
 
Remember you have to have come along to at least one pool session, though we recommend coming to more before you go. The trip itself will cost £40, which includes absolutely everything you need for the weekend except your food. You also must have bought club membership by then which can be found at: https://www.warwicksu.com/societies-sports/sports-clubs/canoe/
 
Canoe Love,
Sam & Canoe exec xx

Week 1 Curry Night

Posted 2mth 4d ago by Emma Hymas

Hello Everyone,

As tradition dictates, we’ll be kicking off this year’s social calendar with one of the best culinary experiences south of viallis. That’s right, Millennium Balti.

We’re booked in @7pm on Thursday 6th October. For those coming from campus, we’ll be meeting at the bus interchange at 6pm. They’ll be plenty of exec wearing canoe hoodies so we shouldn’t be too hard to spot.

It’s a great way to meet everyone in the club, enjoy some Leamington renowned curry and know who to steer clear of when you see that korma order placed.

BYOD as always, so feel free to bring your own Beer, Cider, Softies and even Dragon Soop if you’re feeling especially self-deprecating

Please click going on the event if you want to come along: https://fb.me/e/oGgEKMlq1

Excited to see some new faces and a few, quite frankly, very old ones

Social Love, John & Emma xxx

Nottingham Canoe Polo Tournament

Posted 2mth 12d ago by Dan Collier

Nottingham University is hosting a canoe polo tournament over the weekend of week 3. Warwick Canoe will be entering an Open team and a FRESHERS team. We may also be entering a ladies' team based on interest in conjunction with Birmingham Uni Canoe Polo. If you have played canoe polo with us before this will be a great opportunity to refresh your skills after the long summer break. If you have never played canoe polo, this is your chance to give it a try. The freshers' team will only play other freshers' teams, so everyone will be in the same position. Not only will this give you a chance to give canoe polo a try outside of the pool sessions but also the chance to experience being part of the wider canoe polo community.

If you are interested in playing please use the following links to sign up, you must have an account on the website to sign up:

The cost of the weekend is still to be confirmed.

Any questions please feel free to ask any member of the exec.

May the tournaments begin again,

Dan
