New Members

Step One: Club Information / Dry Induction

6:00pm to approximately 6:30pm – first Tuesday of the month

Come and tour our facilities and learn how our Club operates, what we have to offer and ask questions.

Please register by emailing membership@swancanoeclub.org.au. If you are unable to make an induction night, please contact us and we will try to arrange another time.

Step Two: Online Registration

Complete a Membership Registration on the Paddle Australia Go Membership portal accessed through the button below.

A new member Nomination Fee of $110 is payable for all new adult and adult concession members. The Nomination Fee is a contribution towards the Club facilities that have been funded by past members as well as induction and administration costs which are incurred for new members.

The process requires you to:

  • Click the [Sign-up] button
  • Complete the personal details
  • Complete a series of Paddle Australia declarations
  • Click the [Join a Club or Renew Club Membership] button
  • Enter Swan Canoe Club into the Club Finder
  • Select your Membership Type
  • Complete prompts – including the purchase of a fob (refer step 4) if you would like to pay for this online
  • Checkout

If you would like assistance with this process you can email membership@swancanoeclub.org.au or assistance can be provided in person at the end of the Dry Induction or prior to the Wet Induction.

Step 3: Wet Induction

6:00pm to approximately 7:00pm – second Tuesday of the month

Learn your way around the boat shed and how to use equipment, demonstrate an assisted capsize and a 50m swim with a PFD. Don’t forget to pack a towel and dry clothes!

Please register by emailing membership@swancanoeclub.org.au. If you are unable to make an induction night, please contact us and we will try to arrange another time.

Step Four: Fob Access

Fobs (keys) are available to provide access to the Club for a one off fee of $60 ($20 refunded on return). The fob fee can be paid during online registration in step 2 or cash on the day. Fobs are available when steps one to three are complete and this is usually done immediately after the Wet Induction when the Induction sign-off is finalised.

Family Membership

Family membership is available for families of 3 or more in the same household, with no more than 2 adults. Family membership provides a 30% discount for PWA fees and a 20% discount for SCC fees on standard individual memberships.

For the purposes of the first year Nomination Fee this will be $88 per each adult or adult concession member, being $110 less 20%. There is no Nomination Fee for juniors.

To process a Family Membership on the Go Membership portal start Step 2 above for the primary adult and for membership type select Family Membership. Add the primary adult and then continue to add each member of your family.
