How to Join
To become a member of PITTWATER OUTRIGGER RACING CLUB there are two (2) registration fees that apply.
The club has 1 registered coach who plans the training sessions for the whole year in advance and special technique sessions are arranged during the year. We train from Bayview either BYRA or Rowlands Reserve and enjoy the picturesque waters of Pittwater.
These training sessions are open to all club members and continue throughout the year. Winter is a great time to train and maintain fitness. During the race season, men’s, women’s and mixed crews may choose to train separately and at other times to fit their individual race preparation schedules.
Please join us on the Pittwater Outriggers on the TeamApp so that you will always know what training opportunities exist. We can all see who is training and ensure we have the correct equipment at the right location.
Opt in to player or official and your reason for joining is that you are a member/paddler.
STEP 1: Annual PORC club fee ($320.00 for 365 days of paddling) with access to any training session & the clubs fleet of OC1, OC2 & OC6 outrigger canoes. This fee is due in October of each year.
STEP 2: AOCRA (Australian Outrigger Canoe Racing Association) member fee $70.00 per annum. This provides individual paddlers with the necessary Insurance cover provided by our national governing body. This fee is due 12 months from the date of first joining AOCRA.

How to Pay AOCRA Fees
Fees paid directly to AOCRA (not to PORC) on an annual basis. Your year begins on the day you join, so timing is different for everyone and probably will not coincide with paying your club fees. AOCRA will automatically remind you each year when your fees are due. This money goes towards State and National administration and provides the necessary insurance cover whilst you train and compete in AOCRA and other events/activities as a PORC club member.
- When filling in the membership form on our website there is a link through which you can join PORC. More information here.

You must join both PORC and AOCRA to paddle, even if you do not intend to race.
