A little about our club

Newy Paddlers are a recently formed paddling club situated on Throsby Creek in Carrington in Newcastle Harbour. No matter what craft or what skill level you have, Newy Paddlers are bound to have something for you that will make your paddling experiences a pleasurable and rewarding time.

We cater for all paddlers, with our social paddles, training, racing, coaching, and time trials, Newy Paddlers have always got something happening that you may be interested in. This club is about having fun so if you want to be around like-minded people this is the place for you. Our goal is to bring the Newcastle and Hunter paddling community together.

Mission Statement

We are a non-profit organisation focused on developing athletes in the sport of kayaking, canoeing and all other paddlesports.

We strive for all paddlers no matter what age or skill, to be connected with a desire to create lifelong friendships through paddlesports and nurture a “paddle for life” mentality.

Vision Statement

Our vision is to be a nationally recognised paddlesports club that offers our members an opportunity to learn in an encouraging environment, develop skills and a passion to paddle to the best of their ability so they become champions both on the water as well as off the water.

To develop a strong and competitive junior membership that can compete at their highest level and to introduce new paddlers with fun and enjoyable paddlesports opportunities.

Our Values

To create a safe, competitive atmosphere where all members work together to develop outstanding junior and senior sportsmen and women of all abilities in all paddlesports.

  • To encourage our young athletes to develop into an adult that knows how to find balance between family, sport and work.
  • To provide our members with a sense of affiliation, respect for the environment, discipline, determination, dedication and sportsmanship that leads to respect for their teammates, their community and for themselves.
