Historic agreement between paddle sports

Sam Lyons, Wednesday, 19 December 2012

Australian Canoeing has signed a deed of commitment with AOCRA and AusDBF to create a Paddle Sports Alliance

The new alliance will help to provide a cohesive effective national collaborative system for paddlesports in Australia.

The Alliances objectives are to incorporate a National calendar of events, provide pathways and development in Ocean Racing and to explore joint administrative opportunites.

Australian Canoeing CEO, Greg Doyle, welcomed the signing of the agreement.

"This new collaboration, along with the agreement that is already in place with Surf Life Saving Australia heralds a very exciting time for paddle sports in Australia" Mr Doyle said.

"We may not all be paddling the same craft but now we are closer to all paddling in the same direction"

The agreement was signed on behalf of AC by Board Member, James Rennell.
