We are UPSU Canoe and Kayak Club, we were founded in 2005 and have been thriving ever since. We have built a reputation over the years for providing something for everyone no matter what your interests or ability. We are a friendly club with the sole intent to get our members out and about as much as we can whilst offering training and a safe environment to learn new skills and of course meet new people. We also offer some of the cheapest trips of any water sports club and unlimited free training sessions so what are you waiting for, sign up today. The cost to join us is only £35!
Here's a video showing who we are (link)
By becoming a member you gain the ability to join us on our fantastic trips. NSR (National Student Rodeo) is our major competition, it is a gathering of over 1000 students to compete and party! Our trips include everything from flat water canoeing to white water kayaking! We actively encourage our members to gain BC qualifications, if you are interested in gaining a specific qualification let us know and we’ll try to organise it for you. Throughout the year we enter into student competitions too. We also have an amazing Christmas meal each year, with prizes for various achievements, this is always good fun and a massive turnout! Then we have a summer meal with prizes to round off the year.
As mentioned above we run a range of sessions:
Our focus for this year is to provide brilliant training and exciting sessions/trips for all of our amazing members all year round. We are planning to bring together tonnes of people (those with and those without experience paddling) to get out & about, learn new skills and most importantly... have the time of your lives. After the years we've all had, we know that we all need something to look forward to, something to enjoy, something to bring energy back into life... and that is us!
We can't wait to see you on the water!
