Activity
Location: Alsaa Swimming Pool

Pool sessions are back every Thursday! Newcomers more than welcome, come and experience a new club from the toasty location of our pool up at the airport. We will be training all things kayaking and of course, having a chill break from those studies..

Weekly pool session Thursday 9-11pm.  Pool sessions are nice and chill and nothing is expected. They're really fun and you get to meet new people and try a new sport!  We will send out weekly links to sign up!

We meet at our big green container just inside the Dcu Sports Grounds (St. Clares) for 8pm. From there we will collect all our gear and then drive to the pool. You don't need any fancy gear to attend just swimwear and a towel. For newcomers you'll get familiar in kayaks and we'll be teaching the basics. For members getting there water legs we will continue to teach new moves! If your more experienced come along and work on those skillz. Great way to learn a new water-sport in the comfort of a warm pool.

About Canoe Club

DCU Canoe club is one of DCU's BEST, most FRIENDLY and most ACTIVE WATER SPORTS CLUB and most importantly we have an immense amount of CRAIC. We REALLY welcome everyone as if they are apart of our mad water loving family straight away! 

Kayaking:

We regularly train in Whitewater, Freestyle and Canoe Polo, and we do this by having countless river trips throughout the year, weekly pool sessions to practice freestyle tricks and canoe polo. Most of these training sessions are free for all Canoe Club members throughout the year! What a bargain!!

Large weekend trips:

We have numerous wild weekend trips throughout the year, including a kayak-surfing weekend on Achill Island, Camping trip on an Island, and Kayaking intervarsities (location for the weekend changes every year), where we kayak, have big nights out, parties, and of course kayak/surf some more. The social aspect of DCU Canoe is very important to us!

Our club is super welcoming to people of any standard from first timers to seasoned paddlers.

We are active both on and off the water so if you don't feel comfortable at our training sessions still feel free to turn up as a social member to our nights out.

Other events that we take part in throughout the year are: Halloween fancy dress party (hosted on zoom this year) Christmas party, Charity Christmas swim, pub meet ups and much more!!
