The UCCC has a long history at the University of Canterbury and is known for its high activity rate. Our goal is to nurture and develop any interest in Canoeing, River Kayaking, Sea Kayaking, Multi-Sport Kayaking, Canoe Polo and any other forms of Canoeing and Kayaking. We offer beginners courses, intermediate courses, water specific safety training and most importantly a way to get in contact with other like-minded and skilled people.

Who we are

The UCCC is a non-profit organisation that is organised by students who volunteer their time for organising the club, running trips, social events and training programs.


The UCCC has an emphasis on safe water practice and educating people how to mitigate the effects of their recreational practices on the unique and amazing environment we have in New Zealand. These are two areas where the UCCC definitely practices what it preaches.
