About

The University of Saskatchewan Kayak Club is dedicated to teaching basic kayak and canoe polo skills through a variety of Learn-To-Kayak sessions for both students and residents around Saskatoon. The Learn-To-Kayak sessions teach basic skills such as wet-exits, T-rescues, front strokes, back strokes, hand rolls and paddle rolls. Learn-To-Canoe Polo sessions are offered as a complimentary course. This can help paddlers develop more confidence in the water, improve skills, and learn how to play canoe polo. All interested individuals are encouraged to come out and try these sessions. Kayaks and all required gear are provided for use at the PAC pool during the fall and winter program as part of the membership fee.

Our club is the home of canoe polo in Saskatchewan. This sport, which is best described as a mix of basketball and water polo, is played throughout the world. Club practices run twice a week on Sundays and Tuesdays, and non-members can join for a $10 drop in fee. The first hour of practice on Sundays is dedicated to improving individual skills with a kayak and it is a great way to learn more aspects of gameplay.
