What we’re all about
LUUCC is one of the friendliest clubs in Leeds and one of the best kayaking clubs in the UK. We pride ourselves on being welcoming to everyone, regardless of their paddling experience. We run weekly kayak training and canoe polo sessions as well as river trips/ tournaments at the weekend. Not only that, but we run kayaking weekends away and organize the National Student Rodeo every year – a freestyle kayaking event for over 1000 kayakers.
The different trips we run:
- Sunday Trips: Every Sunday of each term we run a river trip. We drive out and paddle on a river for the day. Ending the day with a trip to the pub. Tickets can be found on our shop.
- Weekend Trips: We host a number of weekends away kayking across the year. The first trip takes place in November, the second takes place in January and a final trip takes place in March. On these weekends we drive somewhere and hire a village hall (or camp, depending on location) to sleep in. These legendary weeknds are spent paddling during the day and partying during the night! These weekends are not to be missed.
- NSR: The National Student Rodeo (or NSR) is a freestyle kayaking competition that is completely organised by your competition secretaries for over 700 paddlers across the UK.
- BUCS Weekend: Once a year we head to compete in the BUCS canoe polo, the days will be filled with competitive canoe polo, whereas the evening will be filled with a huge party. Another one to not miss out on!
We have training on Mondays and polo on Thursdays at 8:45PM at the Edge. River trips take place every Sunday. Canoe polo is a fast-paced, semi-contact, 5-a-side game with the aim of getting a ball into the oppositions goal. We have teams competing in beginner to experienced tournaments.
Join us every Wednesday for an epic social! We also end every pool session with a trip to the pub for a short catch up.
The annual membership includes access to the Edge pool for pool sessions, your insurance, full use of the club’s equipment and access to socials every week. We have both full year memberships and individual semester memberships on offer. We offer memberships to both students and non-students.
