Varsities Selection
« on: November 30, 2018, 14:56:25 »
Please note these dates are subject to change.

Varsities will be taking place from the 14-17th February in Limerick. Accommodation will be roughly 30 euro (this will be subsidized by the club) per night or less in the fancy ass Castletroy hotel. In preparation for this we will be holding trials in order to select the teams to take this trophy home again!

BoaterX trials will be held in conjunction with the ww trials at sluice on 2nd Feb this is basically a hell for leather race over a short distance. Everyone should try it to see how you get on.

White Water trials will be held on Sunday the 27th of December on the way down to Kerry in castleconnel at the actual course and 2nd Feb at sluice. As there will be slalom gates on the ww course, Aisling Conlan has kindly offered to help us by running a skill course in conjunction with the trials. This is a great opportunity to improve your slalom regardless of making the team. Try to make it to both of these to improve your chances. We will have safety on the course so we encourage anyone with their level 3 skills to come and do the trials, even if you don't see yourself going for the team. Team selection will be based on results and over all paddling experience and ability.

Freestyle trials will be held in the pool on Thurs 31st of Jan. We will run a mini competition and points scored will be taken. The final decision on the team won't be based on the points scored alone. Team selection will be based on the points scored and on overall freestyle experience.

Long Distance training will take place on the Canal at Portobello on the 26th Jan. Long distance will be primarily some training in wobbly boats as everyone can compete in long distance! LD is a great way to get involved for more inexperienced paddlers and for freshers to represent your college for the first time! The more entries we have in LD the better so please put your name down down below if you want to compete in LD in varsities! Your club needs you!


The Polo team will be chosen from those who have been competing in polo competitions all year. We hope to have this team picked before the polo comp on the weekend of the 20th so they will have a chance to play together before varsities. Wednesday pool sessions will be given to polo in order for the team to train together. Stick your name down if you want to be considered for the polo team.


Please pop your name down and state the disciplines you would like to compete in.

I'd love to try a long distance in a boat that isn't a white water boat like a K1 or one of those other wobbly boats!

Polo (cheeky, but hey if you need a man id like to be there)

Boater X/White Water
