Our FREE beginner sessions with accredited coaches take place every Monday at 5.15pm next to Yorkeys Knob boat ramp.  So come on – give it a go!   The worst that can happen is you will get wet and have a lot of fun!

First things first
For your protection, before you paddle you are required by the Australian Outrigger Canoe Racing Association (AOCRA) to complete an indemnity and release form. This entitles you to six free sessions which enables you to see if you are interested in continuing with the sport. 

Please see a Club Coach at the beginning of your first paddling session to complete the indemnity form.   

What to bring: Clothes that can get wet – if it is stinger season then lycra leggings should be worn (boardies over the top if you want), towel, cap, water, sun screen. The club will provide PFD, canoes and paddles (until you purchase your own).

Paddling Etiquette: We do not swear or make inappropriate comments in the canoe, where possible we store the canoe with the bow pointing towards the water or out to sea, we do not step over the canoe or paddles while they are out of the water, we always enter and exit the canoe from the left side – the ama side, the canoe is the most important member of the crew and is treated accordingly.

After six paddling sessions, you are asked to become a member by completing the registration form and medical declaration form online (instructions below). This will cover public liability insurance and at this time you will have to pay AOCRA fees ($70 Senior, $45 Junior) and the relevant club fees. Please see a committee member if you have any questions.

Before joining, please read our Risk Management Policy.
