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. If you have any questions at all please contact the committee by posting on our freshers Facebook page: Or on our club's facebook page: Or via email: (Questions are answered sooner when posted on the FB page rather than via email). Theres also loads of info on our website, (this does have old/out of date things on)

We run pool sessions twice a week (Monday and Thursday 9 pm-10 pm at the Jubilee Sports center) where we coach you on everything you could possibly need to know. As well as river sessions on Wednesday afternoons at the Water Sports Center Near Wessex Lane Halls. If that wasn't enough we also run weekend river trips away all over the country fortnightly. 

The best way to keep up to date with the club is by joining the freshers Facebook page: (
