DRSSA highly recommends PaddleSA if you’re looking to get involved in paracanoeing or kayaking. PaddleSA is committed to providing the opportunity for the inclusion of people of all abilities in recreation and sport paddling.

There are two pathways for inclusion paddling provided by PaddleSA: Paddleability & Paracanoe.

Paddleability is the name of the inclusive program for people with physical and/or intellectual disabilities who want to have fun and go paddling for recreation. PaddleSA will work with community groups to provide opportunities for people with all abilities to have an introduction to paddling.


PaddleSA provides a number of programs for inclusive recreational paddling. PaddleSA partners with DRSSA to provide recreational canoeing activities for people with a mobility impairment. The program is called Recreational Inclusive Canoeing (RIC). PaddleSA Team Paddle Challenge provides an opportunity for your group (whatever their abilities) to compete in a weekend of canoeing and orienteering on the Murray River.
Paracanoe is the Paralympic discipline and is the inclusion program for people who want to race in the sport of sprint racing. Paracanoe is the inclusive program for people who want to be involved in the sport of Sprint Kayak Racing. Races are held over the distance of 200m in a Sprint Regatta. PaddleSA works in partnership with Wheelchair Sports SA and the Australian Paralympic Committee to assist paddlers to achieve their best.

Go fast on water - PaddleSA provides coaching and works with athletes to be the best they can. If you are driven to be the best and are love to train hard to get there, paracanoe can unleash your talent. We are looking for people who are prepared to commit to a training schedule (both on the water and in the gym).
