Posted by: Lara
There are still spaces to play in the upcoming tournament this week!
 
The tournaments are a great opportunity to play against other teams and in a proper competitive format. It’s a great learning opportunity, so if you want to play but you’re not sure you’re good enough, sign up anyway! We’re running a tactics talk tonight, and Friday’s session will be a BLadies session specifically to prepare for the tournament :)
 
If you’re still not sure, shoot me a message and we can chat about it.
 
Bs signups here
Ladies signups here
 
Signups close at 6pm, so get going!

Bladies Tournament!

FREE WARWICK TOURNAMENTS!!!

Our indoor tournaments are back this term! It’s a great opportunity to play together as a team, on your own turf, against other actual university teams!

Our tournament will be in the Sports Hub pool on the 16/11/19 (Week 6 Saturday) from 12:00-20:00. It’s two tournaments that run simultaneously for Bs and Ladies, so if you’d like to be part of the team, please sign up!

Anyone is welcome to sign up, though it doesn’t guarantee you a space on the team unfortunately. This is a great training opportunity too, so don’t think you don’t have a chance just because you’re new to the sport!

Find the signup links at warwickcanoe.uk/site/trips

Any questions, comments, or opinions? Send them my way!

From friendly neighbourhood Coach, Lara

Hey everyone!

This week's social lands on 31st October, that can only mean one thing, it's time for Halloween!

We'll be heading to my house (6 Silverbirch Avenue, CV4 8LP (Use my postcode in maps, the address never seems to work)) for some Halloween themed games and other shenanigans. It's BYOB and fancy dress is required.

If you're not too sure where to go, some of the exec will be meeting at the bus interchange for 7 (you don't need to take the bus, it's Canley) so you can have some walking buddies, otherwise, see you there at 7:30

See you there

Social Love

Owen, Cameron and all the exec

**Dartmoor Trip**

Morning fellow gnar shredders,

We had an interesting Freshers trip this weekend, but if you missed out then don’t worry as we have another trip going on this term: Dartmoor (Wk5)!

On the 1-3 November (weekend of Week 5) we will be heading down to Dartmoor to paddle the River Dart. If you have no idea what this river is about take a look at this schmexy video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-xr01ODrOyM&t=78

The river is suitable for paddlers of any ability, with the only requirement being that you have been to at least one of our pool sessions prior to the trip (Mon & Wed 20:30 – 22:00). The trip will cost £42 and signups will go live this Thursday at 12:00 (noon). Sign up at warwickcanoe.uk/site/trips.

We look forward to seeing everyone who is coming to Kit & Cocktails this Thursday, where we will be meeting at the bus interchange on Campus 7pm to head straight to the Leam Boat Centre. Don’t forget to sign up for cocktails or mocktails on warwickcanoe.uk/site/trips in advance!

Canoe Polo Rules Talk

Posted 4y 5mth ago by Some Old Git
Posted by: Lara

Feel like you don’t know what you’re doing in sessions? Want to know what the  funny signals the ref makes mean? Want to stop asking so many questions? (me too)

Come to the Canoe Polo Rules talk! The main rules talk for the year will be happening on Tuesday at 19:00 in L4!

Featuring! Rules! Cards! Signals! Kahoots!

Come along to learn the rules, and you’ll learn more about the game at the same time too. This will be important in sessions as, from Tuesday, we will be reffing to the complete set of rules.

Returners, are of course also welcome too, as it will be a great refresher of the rules and obviously will include the updated 2019 ruleset.

Love, your friendly, neighbourhood coach, Lara

P.S. If you have any questions, or can’t make Tuesday, feel free to message me any time :)

We'll be leaving campus from the bus interchange around 19:00 as usual, look out for some exec members.

The cost for this social will be either £5 for cocktails or £3 for mocktails, there will be an open bar for the night so the cost is for the evening, not per drink.
