Wednesday Barrage Session

The Wednesday barrage sessions take place at the Tees Barrage in Stockton. We meet at the boathouse at 4 pm after the gym session. The barrage is an artificial white water course with a cafe and showers.

With BUCS slalom and NSR both happening this term, the sessions are a good time to try out freestyle moves or nail your gate technique.

Everyone is welcome to come along!

Thursday Polo session

Canoe Polo training session. 

Monday pool session

Meet at the boathouse for 19:40, to load the boats onto cars and drive to Darlington. 

The session is 21:00-22:00 and you can expect to be back in Durham for around 22:45. 

Please bring swimwear, and a towel (and t-shirt/shorts/leggings to wear on top in the pool if you want).

In this session there will be opportunities to practise general kayaking skills, play games and have fun in the warmth of a swimming pool with our trained coaches -- one of the best sessions of the week to come to if you're a beginner, or if you want to work on improving any of your kayaking skills.

This term there will be more of a focus on building skills for the upcoming events in polo, slalom, and freestyle.

NSR 2018

What do you get if you bring together a massive group of students from all over the country, get them drunk and put them down one of the best whitewater courses in the country? NSR!!!

NSR is the National Student Rodeo - the largest freestyle competition and student paddling event in the UK. There are competitions for all levels of paddlers in all sorts of boats. And you don't even have to paddle if you don't want to. It's a great event to come along and watch, and laugh at the inevitable carnage. 

Then there's the party. Some people say it's the best paddling party in existence. And even better, it's fancy dress! This year the theme is 'countries'. So don your best flags and national dress, and let's go have fun!

You can compete in as many classes as you want: K1, C1, squirt boat, duo, C2 (the freestyle C2 team from Durham completely smashed the competition last year, coming a clear first in the class).

Prices are out! The basic ticket, which covers the competition, party, camping and a meal on Saturday, is £53. This is a bargain price!

Easter Scotland Trip

This is the first large trip away of the year. We will be heading up to somewhere in Scotland to spend several days experiencing some of the best whitewater in the country. We will be doing a range of rivers for most abilities. We ran a similar trip last year, so if you want to find out more, just ask Molly, Max, Ronan or Philippa.

If you have any questions, feel free to get in touch.

BUCS POLO TRAINING WEEK

This is a chance to come back and refresh your polo skills before the bucs competition at the end of the week. We will have a range of activities from tactics sessions to water based skills and practice games. It is arranged so people also have time to revise for upcoming exams and finish off those last essays of the year. 

It is really important to try and make this week as it gives the est chance of performing well at the competition a session well as practicing as a team. 

BUCS POLO

The last bucs event of the year!!!!!

Get signed up for the biggest polo competition in the university calendar. (Or as dan would like to think the universe!!) 

This is a chance to play against many different university teams (over twenty unis attend this competition) at a level to suit you. There is a mens, women's, b league and an old boys so something to suit everyone. 

Again if you do not wish to play but want to come and support as ever you are more than welcome.  We don't organise this event so you won't be expected to help- just bring banners and pom-poms! 

The more the merrier at this event. In previous years we have done well and it is great to have as many people there as possible from all levels, beginner to seasoned pro. 

We will have a bucs training week before hand so get ready for that as well. We will leave on the Friday 13th April and return on the Sunday. It's also in April and south so nice and warm - yay ! 

ALPS 2018!

Have you ever fancied paddling fluffy white water in the hot sun with beautiful mountains around? Well, you'll have your chance this summer!

The plan is to spend two weeks out in the French Alps at the end of summer term. We'll be based in Argentiere, a real hotspot for paddlers. There's plenty to do, even if you don't want to paddle every day. We'll be doing a range of rivers, from easy ones suitable for everyone, to gnarly gorges that will provide endless amusement for anyone watching from the bank! 

Anyone can come, but we'd like you to get out on some river trips next term if you're interested. Deposits will be taken towards Easter, so you've got plenty of time to decide.

Sun, fun and french wine - what more could you want?
