|Montane Jackets||Posted By: Dan On: Mon 2nd Dec, 2013 11:50am|
As some of you may have heard, every year we order montane jackets. Here is the link:link
You can have them in multiple colours, red, black or green, and they will have your name on the front and the Warwick canoe logo on the back. As you can see they will be great for keeping warm on trips, and you will no longer have to feel jealous of older members swanning around in their jackets.
The cost will be 79 pounds, which is less than last year, and quite cheap considering they cost over 100 quid normally.
In order to get the cheaper deal, we need over ten people. So please get interested folks! If you want one of these there is a sign up online now at link To select what size and colour you want please put that in the medical conditions section of the sign up. We are aiming to have the jackets arrive at some point next term so the order will be being placed at the end of week one next term so please make sure to sign up before then if you want one.
See you all at christmas dinner! (and if not I wish you a happy studying session)

| ||National League Div 4 Polo||Posted By: Matt On: Wed 2nd Oct, 2013 8:36am|

11th January - Stoke
8th February - Stratford Upon Avon
So if you're free for these dates and want to play some polo outside of the pool sessions please sign up on the trips page link
| ||Welcome Freshers||Posted By: Dan On: Sat 28th Sep, 2013 5:24pm|
Welcome to the University of Warwick Canoe and Canoe Polo Clubs!
Our pool sessions are free to attend and aimed at people of all ability levels, from kayaking experts to complete beginners. Each session all you will need to bring is yourself, swimming kit and a t-shirt we will supply the rest.
The sessions are:
And after every evening session we go to one of the pubs on campus.
At your first pool session you are required to swim 2 lenghts and then do a capsize drill while supervised and guided by one of our experienced members.
Each term we do several white water trips to different places around the country. Currently we have 3 weekend trips planned for the first term with a 4th one being a possibility. If you're interested in signing up for any trips you will need to be a member of the club and have attended at least one pool session although more are advised.
In addition to club run trips members will sometimes try to find other people to go to HPP (an artificial whitewater course in Nottingham) and other popular paddling spots with them by posting on the website or asking around the people at pool sessions.
Throughout the year, the canoe polo club hosts a range of friendly tournaments against other universities that cater for all ability levels. We also play at externally hosted tournaments since playing against members of other teams lets you pick up new skills and generally makes everyone a better player.
The year builds up to the fantastic BUCS Canoe Polo Tournament, where university teams from across the country come together for a weekend of polo and drinking (and not necessarily in that order), and of course to find who can field the best team! We have had a lot of success here, with the A team coming in 2nd, the Ladies took 5th, the B’s 3rd, and the old members 4th last year.
In addition to visits to the pub after sessions we also run a wide variety of socials throughout term time with some of the highlights being pub golf, Christmas meal and our big end of year party. Just in the first 5 weeks of this term we have multiple pub trips, a 3 legged bar crawl around Leamington, circling at Pop, a kit trip to a local kayaking shop and a cocktails night.
Sign up for trips and tournaments will be through our website so if interested please make an account for this website. To make an account on the website, follow this link.
Looking forward to seeing you at a session soon!

| ||Summer circuits||Posted By: Professor Henry Brubaker On: Tue 2nd Jul, 2013 4:31pm|
|Good Afternoon all,|
Are you trying desperately to get yourself in shape for the beach this summer or trying to fit into your favourite little black dress to no avail? I know I am, and that's why I plan to run a circuit training session every tuesday evening before polo.
I have arranged to have the activities room 1700 - 1800 hrs on tuesdays every week over the summer starting from next week (9th July).
The session is open to anyone who is interested. Bring friends and family, the more the merier. It will involve a warm up then 3 circuits comprising of 10(ish) excercises such as sits-ups, press-ups, planks and other lovely manoeuvres before a gentle warm down all done to music. We are going to take it inturns to pick the music so bring an ipod/mp3 device if you wish.
See you at polo tonight
