Hello there Oxo's!

Last updated: March 16, 2021

We have an updated return to play plan for Melbourne University Sport! The maximum number of people allowed on trips will now be tied to the indoor household limit, this means we can have trips of 30 people! Tuesday meetings in the clubrooms are still suspended but gear hire is allowed. If you need to hire gear for a club trip, contact your trip leader or relevant sports officer.

Members are required to follow our COVID-19 participant guidelines when on trips and accessing the club rooms.

Stay safe,

Hi everyone,

In order to help people learn about how to minimise risks while on kayaking trips, and to cover the theory required for the next group of leaders, Michael Clark (RMIT outdoors club) will be running a theory night on kayaking, starting from about 6:30pm. 

Please note that this will be exclusively theory. It will be held online, and the link will be sent out closer to the date. If you want to learn about the practical usage of these skills then let me know, as we hope to be able to organise some pool sessions to go through practical applications at a later date.

The main topics that will be covered are:

  • kayaking equipment - types and correct usage
  • teaching capsize drills
  • teaching basic paddle strokes
  • simple rescue/recovery techniques

Come along, bring a friend. This evening is open to people from any of the uni clubs that do kayaking. While this is primarily intended for paddling leaders, the theory covered will be useful for anyone interested in getting into kayaking.
