Canoe

Sports Development

Although we are called 'Southampton University Canoe Club' we are in fact a group of whitewater kayakers! A growing and nationally successful club, SUCC accommodates anyone from people who have never kayaked before (which is how most people join us), to expert paddlers! We run weekly sessions on the river and in the pool, with trips every fortnight and at least one awesome social a week.

There's loads of info on our website: www.canoe.susu.org. If you have any questions at all please contact the committee by posting on our freshers Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/SUCCFreshers2018.19/ Or on our club's facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/sucanoeclub/ Or via email: sucanoeclub@gmail.com (Questions are answered sooner when posted on the FB page rather than via email). .

Canoe Polo

Watersports

Canoe Polo combines kayaking and ball handling skills into an exciting contact team game, where tactics and positional play are as important as the speed and fitness of the individual players.The game requires excellent teamwork and promotes both general paddling skills and a range of other techniques unique to the sport. Each team has five players on the pitch (and up to three substitutes), who compete to score in their opponents goal which is suspended two metres above the water. The ball can be thrown by hand, or flicked with the paddle to pass between players and shoot at the goal. Paddling with the ball is not allowed, so teamwork is essential. Pitches can be set up in swimming pools or any stretch of flat water.The boats are specifically designed for Polo and are faster and lighter than typical kayaks which give them fantastic manoeuvrability. The boats also sport nose and tail bumpers for safety, and full face guards and specially padded buoyancy aids are also required to be worn at all times.SUCPHere in Southampton, SUCP represents the University at competitions all over the country, culminating in the annual British Universities and Colleges Sports (BUCS) tournament in Nottingham. Competitions can range from one day pool meets to weekend camping trips, with three teams representing the club; the A team, B team and Ladies team. With regular training sessions both in the pool and on the river, SUCP is one of the most successful teams around, and you can be a part of it. Even if you aren't interested in competing, the club welcomes all to come and train with us. Anyone and everyone of any ability is welcome to join in, whether you are a seasoned player coming to the university, an experienced paddler looking to try something new or have never even been in a kayak, SUCP has a space for you. See you on the water!
