Sheffield University Canoe Club is one of the biggest sports clubs in the university and you can join whenever in the year you like! We’re a very active club and everyone is welcome, whether you’re a seasoned canoeist or have never sat in a kayak before, You don’t even need your own equipment!
Membership for the year is £30 (for the first two and a half weeks, going up to £35) and this includes all equipment, insurance and a free Canoe Club t-shirt!
We run loads of trips all over the UK, from beginners trips at the start of the academic year with trips to the lake district, a long weekend surfing in wales and more advanced trips as you progress- all run under the guidance of our experienced leaders. There are opportunities to paddle down white water rapids, surf ocean waves, beat Sheffield Hallam at Canoe Polo and even go abroad.
Every week of the academic year we have a range of sessions to come along to, including social sessions, pool sessions, lake sessions & Fitness sessions. See our Facebook Group for more information.
