About Us

Who are the Newcastle Outriggers?

The Newcastle Outrigger Canoe Club (NOCC) caters for all people who are interested in the sport of outrigger canoeing.  It doesn’t matter if you are an elite paddler, a total novice or want a unique team building or corporate event experience – we can cater for you.  There have been outrigger paddlers in Newcastle and Lake Macquarie for many years, and in July 2009 a core group of enthusiastic paddlers decided to form Newcastle Outrigger Canoe Club.  We compete in regattas throughout NSW and at times further afield. We also have community involvement in fundraising activities, come and try days and WEA Training courses.

Come for Paddle - Newcastle Outrigger Canoe Club

Recreational paddling…

If it’s just paddling that you are after, then give Club Coach Steve Dawes a call on 0408594340, send him an email coach@newcastleoutrigger.com.au or just turn up at one of our paddling sessions.

For paddling sessions and locations, please see our ‘Where & When We Paddle‘ page. If you have not paddled before we would like to extend our offer of 6 weeks free paddling sessions so that you can see if you like the sport.

Competitive paddling, team racing regattas

We have teams attend the various regattas in NSW and further afield eg, Takapuna, Cook Islands, Hamilton Island Cup, Molokai, the National Championships. If you would like to compete in outrigging we are happy to have you along either as a serious team or a fun social team or something in between.

Guest Paddlers from out of town or overseas

All guest paddlers get 6 weeks free paddling sessions, after that you can either pay $5/session or join for a full or half year as a club member. We look forward to meeting you.
