Though we have members from many areas, Foothills Paddling Club (FPC) is based in Greenville, SC. We're a paddling club dedicated to promoting safe enjoyment of both whitewater and flatwater in canoes, kayaks, rafts, and other craft. This is our official online home.
Club Meetings are held several times per year, usually at 7:30 PM on the third Thu of a month. Meeting times, places, and topics are announced in advance in our River Rumors newsletter, and on the website calendar
We have paddling trips most weekends. FPC sponsored trips and outings are announced in River Rumors on the calendar. Also, individuals regularly organize trips via messages here. FPC membership is strongly encouraged.
Each paddler is responsible for his or her own safety and well-being. All trips are conducted as mutually enjoyable amateur enterprises. We are not professionals, and no formal training or licensing is required to conduct our trips. Consult the trip coordinator for help deciding if you're qualified for a particular trip. Rate yourself using the Keelhauler Self Test
Membership is only $15 per year. This pays for our River Rumors newsletter, helps pay for some club-sponsored events, and provides for gifts to non-profit paddling and environmental organizations. A Membership Form
is in the files section of this website.
Pool sessions are usually available weekly at Westside Aquatic Complex. Consult the website calendar for details.
