Want to Join Us?

Our club has tryouts at limited times during the year, and for a limited number of athletes.

Please read the Beginning Paddler FAQs before you commit to this and then complete the event sign up process provided below. 

Ideal candidates are ones that want a challenging, unique sport, live in the Ventura area, and want to excel and learn new things.

  • Dates: Four Saturdays –  June 22, June 29, July 6, and July 13 from 9AM to 11AM.
  • Cost $60 — this covers all four sessions!  We require full payment to hold your space in our limited class.  Fees are non-refundable as we have insurance and other hard expenses to cover. Payments are made via PayPal – you can still use a credit card if you do not have a PayPal account, just scroll down when the PayPal window is presented.
  • We provide all equipment including personal floatation devices.  If joining the club, one will need to buy a personal floatation device, get a membership in the American Canoe Association, and later, a paddle.  
  • We require a signed waiver prior to attending.  After making payment, you will be taken to the Youth Waiver page.  Please complete it right away.
  • Our Summer Camp is for ages 11 to 16.  We require parent/guardian approval.
  • All participants MUST be able to swim 100 yards without aid. Our boats are not stable and beginners will tip over at first.
  • Our club meets at the public dock found at 1212 Navigator Drive in the Ventura Harbor on the south side of the Portside housing development.   We do not have a physical building or sign! There is a free parking lot and two beach volleyball courts at the Portside dock.
