Swim/Tread Water Testing

As required by AOCRA, Geographe Outriggers conducts annual 400m swim tests and tread water tests for all current and new paddlers.

Huli/Capsize Drill

Every season club members must undergo “capsize drills” during training. The coach will explain the capsize drill prior to the canoe entering the water and then a practical “flip” is carried out. The coach logs the participants’ names and date. The capsize drill is conducted at the start of each season to ensure every paddler understands their role in the case of a real capsize.
