Club coaches

INCC has a number of qualified flatwater coaches within its membership. Club coaches are involved in our Beginner and Junior Programs, along with several of the training groups. All are accredited with Canoeing Australia, which means they must coach regularly and have up-to-date First Aid and CPR certification.

Private coaching

Some of the club coaches are also available for private coaching.

Our level 2 coach can assist intermediate to experienced or advanced paddlers with technique, racing and conditioning.

Level 1 coaches are available to assist beginners through to intermediate level paddlers in private lessons or shared groups sessions.

If you are interested, please contact the coach directly to discuss fees
