Hard training rewarded with success
We are not just only a recreational club. Many of our paddlers have become State and National representatives. West Lakes Canoe Club is one of the most successful clubs in Australia with a very high level of representation on National Teams every year. At the 2016 and 2017 National Championships, we won the award for the top club in Australia based on the performances of our members. In 2016 14 of our members were chosen to compete for Australia on National Teams in events in Europe, including the Para-Canoe, Under-23 and Junior World Championships teams and the Olympic Hopes Regatta for emerging junior athletes aged 15 to 17 years.
