Afternoon ladies and Gents

As you will probably have noticed by now the freshers have arrived and many of them will no doubt be wondering what the hell we're talking about when we say canoe and canoe polo, so the time has come once again to advertise ourselves.

With that in mind, the sports fair is taking place tomorrow at the sports centre from 10:30 to 17:30 and it would be great to see as many people as possible popping down to the sports centre to help us explain our clubs and hopefully get lots of new members. Even if you can only spare an hour to man the stands please come down!

Welcome Freshers

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

 

Our pool sessions are free to attend and aimed at people of all ability levels, from kayaking experts to complete beginners. Each session all you will need to bring is yourself, swimming kit and a t-shirt we will supply the rest.

 

The sessions are:

 

Canoe

Monday 9:00-10:00pm

Wednesday 9:00-10:00pm

Thursday 3.00-4.00pm

 

Canoe Polo

Tuesday 8.00-10:00pm

Friday 9:45-11:00am

 

And after every evening session we go to one of the pubs on campus.

At your first pool session you are required to swim 2 lenghts and then do a capsize drill while supervised and guided by one of our experience members.

 

River Trips

 

Each term we do several white water trips to different places around the country. Currently we have 3 weekend trips planned for the first term with a 4th one being a possibility. If you're interested in signing up for any trips you will need to be a member of the club and have attended at least one pool session although more are advised.

 In addition to club run trips members will sometimes try to find other people to go to HPP  (an artificial whitewater course in Nottingham) and other popular paddling spots with them by posting on the website or asking around the people at pool sessions.

Tournaments

Throughout the year, the canoe polo club hosts a range of friendly tournaments against other universities for cater for all ability levels. We also play at externally hosted tournaments since playing against members of other teams lets you pick up new skills and generally makes everyone a better player.

The year builds up to the fantastic BUCS Canoe Polo Tournament, where university teams from across the country come together for a weekend of polo and drinking (and not necessarily in that order), and of course to find who can field the best team! We have had a lot of success here, with the A team coming in 2nd, the Ladies took 5th, the BÔÇÖs 3rd, and the old members 4th last year.

Socials

In addition to visits to the pub after sessions we also run a wide variety of socials throughout term time with some of the highlights being pub golf, Christmas meal and our big end of year party. Just in the first 5 weeks of this term we have multiple pub trips, a 3 legged bar crawl around Leamington, circling at Pop a kit trip to a local kayaking shop and a cocktails night.
Sign up for trips and tournaments will be through our website so if interested please make an account for this website. To make an account on the website, follow this link: link

 

Looking forward to seeing you at a session soon!

Summer circuits

Posted by: Professor Henry Brubaker
Good Afternoon all,

Are you trying desperately to get yourself in shape for the beach this summer or trying to fit into your favourite little black dress to no avail? I know I am, and that's why I plan to run a circuit training session every tuesday evening before polo.

I have arranged to have the activities room 1700 - 1800 hrs on tuesdays every week over the summer starting from next week (9th July).

The session is open to anyone who is interested. Bring friends and family, the more the merier. It will involve a warm up then 3 circuits comprising of 10(ish) excercises such as sits-ups, press-ups, planks and other lovely manoeuvres before a gentle warm down all done to music. We are going to take it inturns to pick the music so bring an ipod/mp3 device if you wish.

See you at polo tonight
Blackers


Summer Holiday Polo

Is the fact that campus already looks like something out of a zombie apocalypse film getting you down?

Are you desperate for a distraction from the fact that you don't seem to have the 3 month long holiday this summer that you used to have?

Are you just around campus and fancy laughing at those of us still here?

Well you're in luck, holiday polo starts today 19:15 to 21:30

Hope to see as many people as possible there.

Hi, Think itÔÇÖs too long since you last paddled? Need something to do now that all that revision is out of the way?
Why not come along to the Nene with us on Thurday 20th June (week 9)? We have the whole course to ourselves for two hours and the cost of this trip will be between £10 to £15 dependent on the number of people that we get signing up.
We will be meeting at around 11:30am so that means that even if you have a Thursday morning exam, you will still be able to come and reward yourself for all your hard work this term.
If you are coming please sign up on the website here http://warwickcanoe.co.uk/site/trips/trip/282/ Hope exams/work is going well, Dan

It's a Knock Out

Think we should make a team and enter this. We need 10 people.

If you want to take part it will be £8.

Date: 25/06 (Tuesday week 10)

Where: Tocil field

If you want to be part of the team, you need to be one of the first 10 people to post on here, and pay me £8 before I have to sign up with a team which will be around this weekend, I'm on campus all week.

First come, first served. If you haven't payed before I sign up, your place will go to another person if they pay me before you do.

Cheers
Jebend
