Club Inductions

New members are required to attend two club inductions when joining the club.

Attending club inductions helps increase the safety of members and equipment, and enhances the smooth running of the club. You do not have to attend an induction session before participating in canoe polo or pool training (although you do need to be a member of the club, or a current member of another AC affiliated club in the case of canoe polo sessions).

  • On-water club induction (for members and visitors)

    This induction introduces members to paddling on the river including safety procedures and what to do when taking a boat onto the river. You will be paddling on the river during this session. You need to attend an on-water induction before paddling with the club. Club visitors are welcome to attend an on-water induction as a method of trying out paddling, talking to members, and seeing what the club has to offer.

    • Paddle type: Flatwater
    • Bring: Hat, a long sleeved shirt, a water bottle, sunscreen, dark glasses, sensible clothes and suitable footwear.
    • Duration: ~ 2 hrs depending on numbers (or a bit longer if no-one is in a rush)

  • Off-water club induction (for members)

    This induction covers the general procedures of the club, the rules of the club you agreed to when you joined, and the way the club operates.

    • Ask for a chair if you want one!
    • Duration: ~1 hr

Members will not be given access to the shed until they have attended both inductions, although they are permitted to paddle with official paddle sessions after completing an on-water induction for a limited period.

Location: University of Queensland building 30 - UQ Canoe club boat shed
Address: North river end of Sir William MacGregor Drive, St. Lucia
