Associate Membership




For individuals wishing to be recognised as a club member and / or official assisting their club to achieve its objectives. Categories are:


Volunteer – recognition to the volunteers within the club. 

One view is that clubs may pay for volunteer memberships as it is unrealistic to expect volunteers to pay for the opportunity to help our paddlers.


Trainee – this category would be incorporated into the cost for individuals undertaking AC Award or Coaching Courses. Providing insurance coverage during the requisite course participation days and also providing instructors with links to the clubs.
