Posted by: Fresher Christine

Sup paddlers!

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! Next weekend, 18th – 20th October (end of week 3), we will be heading to North 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 this 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 in advance as places go fast!

Remember you have to have come along to at least one pool session, though we recommend coming to more before yougo. The trip itself will cost £29.10, which includes everything you need for the weekend except your food and off-river clothing. You also must have bought club membership by then which can be found at: https://www.warwicksu.com/societies-sports/sports-clubs/.

Canoe Love,

F.Chris & Canoe exec

WWSR Term 1

Posted 4y 8mth ago by Some Old Git
Posted by: Dan

Hi Everyone

I hope everyone’s having a good summer break,

As Coach I’m in the process of organising a WWSR (White Water Safety and Rescue) course that will run at some point in mid to late term 1. This trip will teach you all about rescuing and safety on the river so is perfect if you’re interested in the leadership side of things, or if you just fancy throw lining the exec when we swim. This is also a good course to make you feel more comfortable in moving water as you get to practice important skills such as defensive swimming and chase boating.

For more information on WWSR please visit:

https://www.britishcanoeing.org.uk/courses/white-water-safety-and-rescue-training

This will be a two-day trip during a weekend and is likely to cost around £80. This will depend on things like the transport available.

I want to see how many people are interested in attending, so that we know we have enough people to run the trip. If people could email or message me to say they’re interested that would be great. If you have any questions, feel free to email me too.

My Email: coach@warwickcanoe.co.uk

(Registering your interest does not guarantee you will be on the trip and doesn’t mean you have to go)

The goals should be fixed by Friday’s session - which means RAGE! is back on. 

As the term is coming to an end, we’ve decided that it is best to get this all finished before Week 10. 

RAGE! will be happening THIS SATURDAY and on TUESDAY!

Now there’s no excuse to not go to Skooldayz ├░┼©╦£ÔÇ░

Welcome Freshers!

Posted by: Fresher Christine

Welcome to the University of Warwick Canoe and Canoe Polo Clubs!

 

Our pool sessions are aimed at people of all abilities, from kayaking experts to complete beginners. All you need to bring to each session is yourself and swimming kit, and we will supply the rest. At your first pool session you are required to swim 2 lengths and then do a capsize drill whilst supervised and guided by one of our experienced members.

 

We are now over at the NEW fancy Sports Hub on Scarman Road, behind Heronbank (Hype!)

 

Canoe

  •        Monday 8:30 – 10:00 pm
  •        Wednesday 8:30 – 10:00 pm

Canoe Polo

  •        Tuesday 8:30 – 10:00 pm
  •        Wednesday 8:00 – 9:00 am – Ball throwing Practice @ Westwood Games Hall
  •        Saturday 5:30 – 7:30 pm



We offer FREE taster sessions for the first 3 weeks of term

After every evening session we will frequent The Dirty Duck and after Ball Throwing we generally go to Xananas for Breakfast. If you have missed these sessions drop us a message on the Facebook page and we can arrange a time for you to come along.

 

Tournaments & Competitions

As the year progresses the Canoe Polo club will host and attend a multitude of tournaments. These will cater to all abilities and are a great way to improve skills and earn some sweet medals. Everything leads towards the BUCS tournament where mens, ladies and B teams from universities across the country compete with the aim to determine the British Champions.

 

On Friday evenings (8:30 – 10:00pm) we host squad training sessions which primarily focus on preparation for the tournaments.

 

On the Canoe side we participate against other Universities at BUCS Wild Water Racing on the River Washburn.

 

Trips

Throughout the year the Canoe Club has multiple Whitewater trips around the UK before heading to Scotland for the annual tour at Easter. These trips are accessible for members of all abilities and are a great opportunity to improve your gnar shredding ability.

 

Additionally members will organise peer-paddling trips throughout the year to rivers and whitewater courses, generally these are advertised on the Facebook Group.

 

Canoe Polo also holds training sessions on the River Leam in, unsurprisingly, Leamington Spa. These generally occur in Term 2 and the main aim is to practice boat skills, ball skills and fitness. As is par for the club this will most likely be followed by a trip to the pub.




Socials

All year round the club runs a variety of socials from Pub Golf to LaZerquest and from Christmas Meal to EPIC Party(our version of Sports Ball), there is something for everyone

 

Signs up for trips and tournaments all happen through our website so if you are interested in joining this raggedy crew please make an account on the website. To make an account for the website, click this link

Look forward to seeing you soon,

 

Canolo Love,

F.Chris, Joe and everyone else on the Exec
