(behind the State Hockey Centre)
see opposite for map
Our training sessions are designed to suit all levels of ability and fitness, from absolute beginners to advanced, representative training.
The racing seasons for dragon boating and outrigger canoeing cover the entire calendar year, so we are always on the water training no matter what time of year.
However, if you are new to paddling, we suggest that our Saturday sessions would be the best time to come along. See the Introductory Session page for more details. Please make sure you arrive at least 30 minutes prior to times listed to help prepare the boats, this will also give us time to run you through the warm up.
Our training times vary throughout the season, so be sure to check frequently for the latest times.
