Having had a great first year paddling I can’t wait to be back, this time also as your club Treasurer. It’s my job to make sure you get the best kayaking for your money without the club going bankrupt. I will also be responsible for chasing up payments for trips, so make sure that’s a job I won’t need to do much this year! This year is going to be awesome with the committee having some great ideas in the works so get hyped!

Social Secretaries

Victoria & Lenny

Victoria Williams & Lenny Hellings

We may have the largest height difference than anyone else in the club, but put us together and we are your dream social sec team, ready to pass on our thorough drinking knowledge and experience. Social secs in a club are like the bread to your butter, the paddle to your boat, the queue jump to your sin! We promise legendary socials, oodles of fun shenanigans and enough alcohol to sink a battleship, all to make your uni life as fabulous as possible! Not a big drinker? Thats fine! As we also run many amazing non alcoholic socials so EVERYONE gets to have literally the best time ever! We are also your welfare officers, so if you have a problem, need to talk or have any questions about anything at uni we are here to help! (We are very friendly I promise… though maybe slightly drunk) So feel free to contact us :)

Polo Secretary

Lauren Davies

I'm a small, mean, green, kayaking machine...well, at least on the polo pitch (you'll never find me on the river). My job is basically to help Elliot out with all his training, organisation and admin needs for polo. I do as I'm told and I'll do it well 😉. I'm always keen for polo so if you want someone to be dragged out onto the water to throw a ball around, feel free to drop me a message. As much as I am up for a party, I also like to chill and am very sociable (or needy, take your pick). If you have any needs, worries or questions about anything I am always around to chat!

Historical Canoe Club Committee

The club saw significant growth in 2016 highlighting the need for restructuring the committee, the concept of core and non core positions was introduced, the core committee are to be involved in club management meetings while the non core positions help the core positions achieve their goals.

In 2011 it was decided that to enable the club to grow some minor reshuffling was necessary and so the two captain position were replaced with President, Vice President and River Captain.

Past positions have included Polo Captain and more some alternative positions... Flathering Coordinator, Condom Manager, Pool Manager and other such random positions. If a Flathering Coordinator has been appointed he or she should ensure that no time is wasted on Canoe Club events, or, depending on how the position is interpreted, to ensure that any wasted time is managed efficiently! The condom manager should ensure that he/she is always able to produce a condom if asked at any time on a Canoe Club event. The Pool manager should ensure that members of the Canoe Club reach their destination quickly and safely at the end of Pool Sessions, the destination being the Pub.

The Canoe Club committee are usually elected at the annual Swansea University Canoe Club meal at the end of the academic year. The elections are performed by the current club captains, this generally involves a lot of drunken confusion followed by a night out in Swansea.
