Your Support Keeps Us Moving

The Philadelphia Outrigger Canoe Club operates a fleet of five OC6’s (3 Spec boats and 2 carbon-fiber Unlimiteds), an OC2, three OC1s; a Va’a, and two OC trailers. The club also maintains a 2,600-square-foot launch site along the Schuylkill River and provides equipment for its members to use on an annual basis. Needless to say, being such an awesome club takes significant investment of both time and money. Our members do their part by chipping in whenever asked, but we also rely on partnerships with area businesses to keep our club running smoothly.

To learn more about sponsorship opportunities with POCC, please message us on Facebook.

You can also make a tax deductible donation to support the team. Private donations in any denomination are welcome and POCC is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization.

About the ARE OC1 Mana ($3750.00 Value):  The ARE OC1 is the standard outrigger for recreational paddlers who want a canoe that is especially easy to learn. It is the most popular canoe in the South Pacific. One can get up to speed on an OC1 in no time and experience an almost instant level of satisfaction. But the ARE OC1 is anything but standard — a fast and highly responsive canoe that can hold its own on calm or rough waters.
