About the Club:
Though we have members from many areas, including Western North Carolina, Northeast Georgia, Eastern Tennessee, and throughout South Carolina, 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, stand-up paddle boards and other craft.

The FPC sponsors a variety of club sponsored trips throughout the year. There are also many other member trips where you can get together with fellow boaters and enjoy the outdoors. Check the CALENDAR for specifics on trips and social events.
The club wants to challenge and encourage seasoned MEMBERS to lead paddling trips. If you lead a trip, you will be entered into a raffle to be held during the annual film festival. Trips can be on whitewater, flatwater, SUPing, canoing, kayaking, etc. The trip must be approved by the board, for the leader and venue, prior to the trip.
Clinics and Instruction
Roll practice is available during certain times of the year at Westide Aquatics, and YMCA, located in Greenville. This is to give our members a comfortable and safe place to practice on the water during the cold months.
We offer Swiftwater Rescue, beginner clinics, and intermediate/advanced creeking clinic. Check the CALENDAR for more details.
