About Us

      RSCK was created to bring together local paddlers for the benefit of everyone involved and the community as a whole. We strive to spread the word about the great sport of kayaking and encourage beginners to participate. Safety of all paddlers is our foremost concern. We provide paddlers with all the knowledge and tools necessary to safely enjoy the sport. RSCK is a club sport administered by the Department of Recreational Sports at the University of Michigan. Non-student members are welcome; however, the club must maintain at least 75% student membership to be a UM club sport. Because of university policy, we are not allowed to have non-student participants under the age of 18.

      If you would like to participate in club events, please create a profile by logging in. Most of the information submitted to the directory is used by club administrators and is not shown or accessible to the rest of the club and even less is viewable by the public. Your privacy is one of our top priorities. After creating your profile, you will be asked if you want to join the e-mail list. Hanging Out Upside Down Image This site was designed to rely heavily on member contributed content. You will be asked to login before submitting content. If you are planning any river trips, please post them on the Events Page. And don't forget to post a Trip Report afterwards.

     If you are looking for member contact information, you must access that information through the Member Directory. Please be aware that you must be granted access to the restricted area. This policy protects members from unwanted solicitation.

      Non-student participants should check out the info on additional membership requirements and procedures. If you are curious about what your first day would like check out the Beginners Area
