Paddling clubs are a great way to enhance your paddling experience. They’re an excellent opportunity to connect with others who share your interest in the outdoors. As part of a club, you enjoy the fun and increased safety of paddling with a group, and the opportunity to learn from fellow paddlers and broaden your paddling experience. Most clubs offer trips, classes, events, special programs, exclusive member benefits, and other great perks. They also promote good stewardship of the waterways we rely on for paddling. The Triad/Triangle region of NC has several great paddle clubs to choose from- have a look and make some new friends!
