The environment influences the craft and activities offered at each club. Check out the clubs for more information on come and try sessions and club activities.

Paddle Queensland Inc has development opportunities across many disciplines. Not all lead to the Olympics and Paralympics, all have an opportunity to compete at a State, National or World level depending on the participants motivation for competition.
Our clubs support with programs, coaching and competitions to ensure ongoing opportunities for participants seeking to get involved in paddlesports with more than just a ‘pass the time’ focus.
Paddle Queensland Inc is guided by the Paddle Australia FTEM pathway for development within the Olympic/Paralympic disciplines (Sprint/Slalom/Paracanoe).
Currently, Queensland only offers development in Sprint and Paracanoe due to the facilities available.
