2018-2019 membership

Annual membership fees become due again on July 1st.

Current members will receive an email from Canoe Victoria advising when you can renew online.  Can you all ensure your contact details (email) are up to date so you can receive this information.

Good news – we are keeping the fees the same as last year.

For those who do not want to renew online, we will be holding registration days again in July and probably August.

Tours and training nights

We are in the process of organising regular sessions at the Club where you will be able to come down and know that someone will be around.

We may have a tour, training session or just the coffee machine going but you know that on that particular date, something will be happening.

We are hoping to create more of a  social Club environment where you will be able to meet up with other Club members more easily.

Dates and events will be advertised here, on FB and on signage at the Club.

We will also be holding more moving water trips  and training nights in a warm pool.

More information to come.
