Calling Volunteers

Paddling is a community sport.  It exists because people like you volunteer and create opportunities for members to enjoy our sport at every level. It is hoped that every member will contribute in some way.

We have volunteer Board Directors, volunteer Paddlesport Committees, Club volunteers and volunteer event personnel. If you would like to contribute at the State level, please contact the office. We have numerous  paddlesport committees – canoe polo, freestyle, marathon, ocean racing, paracanoe, recreation, slalom, sprint, stand up, whitewater, education/training and safety.

We are also in the process of putting together a major events committee to look after out major events such as the Myall Classic and Parra Paddlefest.

If any take your interest, the existing volunteers would certainly appreciate your input.

Remember, we are a NSW & ACT paddling body, not just a Sydney paddling body.


If you have an interest in photography, videographer, marketing, social media or other area that you think could benefit paddling either in general or specifically please contact our office

Sprint Committee
Are you interested in helping shape the future of Sprinting in NSW? If so, we’d love to hear from you.

The Sprint Committee exists, primarily to run a number of events throughout the year: the monthly Sprint Series and the State Championships held in January. On occasion committee members are also involved in other aspects of PaddleNSW and Australian Canoeing for the betterment of the sport as a whole.

If you’d like to lend a helping hand in shaping the future of Sprinting in NSW, please send through a private message to us here, or email us at  outlining what if any experience you have had on a committee (none is actually needed), why you’d like to be involved in the PaddleNSW Sprint Committee, any areas of particular interest you’d love to be involved in, any other information you think is relevant and of course, please don’t forget your contact details!
