Snowboard Club

|

Welcome to The University Of Sheffield Snowboarding Club

Come join the UK's only dedicated University Snowboarding community! Whether you have never touched a snowboard in your life or you're a seasoned shredder, you definitely won't be alone with SUSC: every year we host a range of events for a big mix of lifelong riders, complete beginners, those just here for the good times, serious shredders and everyone in between!

Here at SUSC we offer professional lessons and sessions for all abilities every fortnight: whether it’s your first-time strapping in, or you want to finally stomp those 360’s, we’ve got it covered! Taking place at an indoor snow dome, it’s about as close to the real thing as you can get! With transport and equipment provided, all you really need to bring is the good vibes.

Fancy a shot at winning a national racing or freestyle medal? SUSC has a great track record in all University Snowsports competitions, the main one being the British University Dry Slope (BUDS) championships. BUDS is an epic weekend away in Stoke - attended by almost every British University - jam packed with good times, socials and celebrations of another podium finish! Competitor or spectator, we will see you there.

If all that doesn’t grab your attention, wait until you hear about our socials! With sponsorship from some of the best bars and biggest clubs in Sheffield, our nights out are always legendary for great value. Mixing it up whenever we can, we party to every taste in music, and also host a range of more casual get-togethers, whether it be for a coffee or at the trampoline park practicing our freestyle moves. Even if the actual snowboarding doesn’t much take your fancy, come along and join our snowsports family socials anyway!

Alongside all the above, twice a year hundreds of Sheffield students take to the French Alps with holiday company NUCO for incredible weeks of partying and snowboarding, with DJ's, games and great company! These two trips (one in the Christmas break and the other at Easter) are not affiliated with the University of Sheffield or SUSC, but are organised by students for students. At student friendly prices, they are definitely not to be missed!

There is a great mix of people in SUSC, and the feeling of community within the club is just a testament to our members and their easy-going energy. That probably explains why we are one of the most easy-going clubs on campus – there no commitment to training or sessions whatsoever – just come along to whatever you fancy, but we really would love to see your faces!

Drop us a message on our Facebook Page (@suscsheffield), Instagram (@suscsnow) or email! We can then walk you through signing up for membership and supplying you with your T-Shirt and Freshers Pack.

This year we aim to keep doing what we do best: continuing to make the club a more inclusive, welcoming and safe space while offering as much snowboarding and social opportunities as possible!
