Welcome to Exeter Uni Canoe Club!
Here you’ll find loads of information about what we do as a club; but if you can’t see what you’re looking for, then why not come meet us during term time at one of our pool sessions (Mon, Wed 20:00- 22:00 at St. Luke’s pool).
As a group of predominantly white-water kayakers, whether you’re a complete beginner (and have never heard of the sport before) or a bit of a pro that already has experience in canoeing or kayaking, we warmly invite you to come and join us for a paddle.
As a club, we also partake in polo, freestyle kayaking, flat-water racing and surf kayaking; mainly for fun but also competitively- so there are plenty of different ways to get involved! We are looking at more ways of getting involved in competitive sport through BUCS, such as polo, slalom and wild-water racing; so join and express your interest if this is something you could see yourself doing! Who knows where it might take you…
We offer all the coaching and instruction that you’ll need to take part safely on the river (or in the surf) – for the large part free of charge! However, we also provide cheap, professionally-run external courses and qualifications tailor-made to our members.
With the region containing some of the best white-water (on Dartmoor and Exmoor in particular) and surf (the South-West generally) in the country, you’d be crazy not to come and give it a go!
From the Captain:
I’m Adam, this year’s EUCC Captain! I joined the club last year as a fresher with very little kayaking experience, but being part of the club has given me so many opportunities to develop – weekly pool training, white water experience and other weekend trips, external training courses, trip to the alps, and this year being on committee. But the best thing about our club is the family you join, and the friendly welcoming atmosphere (cheesy I know but hear me out…).
Whether you’re an experienced paddler, want to take up a new sport at uni, or don’t care for kayaking but want a social bubble, EUCC welcomes everyone! We compete in BUCS (British Universities and Colleges Sport) competitions in Canoe Polo, Slalom and Wild Water Racing, as well as developing opportunities in flat water and surf kayaking, and our themed weekly socials are sure to make your uni experience one to remember … or not, the choice is yours …
If you have any questions, shoot me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org), check out our social media pages (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube), and take a look at our “Who We Are” section of the website to get to know this year’s committee and some of those active members of the club.
Catch you at a pool session soon!
