Our Mission, Vision and values for Newcastle Kayak Club – Newy Paddlers
At Newy Paddlers we truly believe in our Vision and Mission Statements. We are always reviewing and ensuring that the goals and standards that we set are constantly upheld and that all members understand the vision that the club has in regards to current and future members.
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.
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 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 are:
- 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.
