Membership is managed through Paddle Australia’s online registration system, which uses the payment system, Stripe, to ensure security of payments. INCC Yarra Paddlers only accepts registrations with a complete online payment.

New members who have not paddled flatwater kayaks are encouraged to enroll in our beginners’ course or have an individual lesson(s) with one of our qualified coaches. For new members with flatwater kayaking experience, please arrange an orientation session that includes a short time on the water to demonstrate that you have the skills to be safe on the water.

Current members will notice that the club has streamlined its membership categories. In line with recent changes announced by Paddle Australia, there are no longer separate categories for recreational/competitive and own boat/club boat users.

Current members should check and update their Paddle Australia profile when they renew their membership each year. The club uses the contact details on the profile to stay in touch, so it is very important that you keep your profile up to date.
