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 completed online payment.

New members who have not paddled flatwater kayaks are encouraged to enroll in our learn-to-paddle 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 do not qualify for the pro-rata discount that applies from January 1 each year. Members should check and update their Paddle Australia profile when they renew their membership each year to ensure our contact details are up to date.

To join for the first time or renew your membership, go to Paddle Australia’s online registration system.
