How to Join the River Canoe Club of NSW

 

By becoming a member of River Canoe Club (RCC) you are able to participate in all our events. This includes flatwater trips, whitewater trips, Penrith Whitewater Paddling (most weekends), our annual safari and all our all social events.

Your membership fees go toward maintaining the club house, offsetting many of our trips and your insurance.

Members can also hire out a range of paddling gear (including kayaks) at a discounted rate.

River Canoe Club (RCC) is a member of PaddleNSW.  PaddleNSW provide the insurance required when you paddle with us. This means, you must first become a member of PaddleNSW. It is easy to become a member of both by using the Australian Canoeing Join or Renew Procedure.

When renewing or joining you should note that Paddle NSW has introduced a two tier membership structure this year. Only those members who enter competitive events need to register as Full/Competion, most Club members do not paddle competitively and should register as a Recreational/Non-competition member.

  • Full/Competition ($72) – for members entering competition at state and national levels. This includes Canoe Polo, the Hawkesbury Canoe Classic and the WomDomNom
  • Recreational/Non-competition ($62) – for recreational paddlers who will not be entering competition events at state and national levels.

Only those members who enter competitive events need to register as Full/Competion, most Club members do not paddle competitively and should register as a Recreational/Non-competition member.

You can still become a member of RCC and not join PaddleNSW, however you won't be able to paddle and you won't be insured if you attend any of our events.
