Want to Join Us?

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

Our summer tryouts are currently in progress. We may offer another tryout period in August and September after we return from Nationals. 

If you wish to be added to a waiting list and made aware of any opportunities, please use our Waiting List Form below

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.

  • 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.  
  • 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.
