2019 Season


2019 & 2020 Season

The Philadelphia Outrigger Canoe Club welcomes paddlers of all skill levels to join us on the Schuylkill River and at the Jersey shore for open practices. After your third visit, if you would like to continue paddling with us, we will ask you to become a member.

All paddlers — members as well as those attending open events as guest — must sign a waiver prior to paddling with POCC.
