On behalf of Paddle Queensland, it is my pleasure to welcome you to Paddleology – the Study of Paddlesports.
Paddle Queensland is committed to improving the services and support provided to the Queensland paddle community which is why we’re running a range of four-hour skills, safety and supporters’ workshops focused on helping our member clubs, their members and the wider paddling community develop there on and off water paddlesports skill sets, regardless of their preferred discipline and environment.
Twelve workshops are planned for 2023 focused on a range of topics including paddle safety, craft entry/exit, paddle strokes, craft control, technique, play, basic programming, event programming, coaching, development pathways, paddle prep, equipment, leadership, paddle craft, recovery/rescue skills, trip planning, qualification scheme, officiating, event management, governance, volunteers, marketing, grants and sponsorships.
The 2023 Paddleology workshops are free to members, and we encourage all paddlers, coaches, volunteers and committee members to attend as many workshops as possible to nurture a resilient paddling community.
