Club coaches

INCC has a number of qualified flatwater coaches within its membership. Club coaches are involved in our Learn-to-Paddle 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 for members.

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.
