Canoe Sport

For canoe sport we offer beginners courses in kayaks (with double-paddle). The secure getting on and off the boat, paddling and safety techniques, getting off an overturned boat, water way regulations, and endurance training during paddling tours will be taught. At the end of the course, the chance of an introduction in operating a Canadian and a turn on a team Canadian might be given.

Canoe polo is a sport full of action in very nimble kayaks. This type of sport is meant for people that enjoy riding kayaks and have experience in ball games. During games and training you will learn the basics and have fun on the water at the same time.   Beginners and advanced courses are planned.

A game and competitive training will take place on the weekend, at which time all canoe-polo players will be given opportunity to improve their playing techniques and endurance and to experience new playing systems. Highlights for all active members are various university fun tournaments and, of course, the Free University Wannsee Tournament on 30 August / 01 September 2013 at the Aquatic Sports Center.

Recommendable for all canoeists, who love rapid-river canoeing and want to ride a sea kayak or play canoe-polo, is the “eskimo roll” course. During this course, the various techniques of handling the paddle or handwheel and how to re-erect an overturned boat will be taught.

For all nature lovers University Sports offer a walking tour in the area of Feldberger Gewässer and - should the occasion arise - a sea kayak tour in Wismar. The tours will take place on weekends under the supervision of experienced trainers with accommodation in tents.   These offers are meant for people who enjoy exercising in nature and want to make this experience on the water. Paddling beginners and advanced are warmly welcome.

As of this summer rafting courses in cooperation with University Sports in Göttingen will be introduced. Discover the fascination of the Salza rapid-river in Austria with accommodation in hostels and a lot of adventure.
