Our Recruitment & Develpment Paddling program offers the opportunity to learn and enjoy the sport of outrigger canoeing free from the pressures of competition. In addition to developing relationships with other paddlers, we often encounter friends from our marine environment - sea lions, brown pelicans, porpoises, and the occasional whale.
Learn history of outrigger canoeing, terminology, canoe care and maintenance and of course, paddling technique, all the while building teamwork skills and camaraderie with your fellow paddlers.
Don't feel intimidated if you've never paddled. We have paddlers of all ages and fitness levels. Almost all have fallen in love - with the sport and us! Come out and join us and "enjoy another day in paradise."
If you are interested in paddling with Newport's Recruitment & Development program, please contact us. Prior to paddling with us for the first time, please be sure to email us to confirm that the schedule hasn't changed.
