Every year Brisbane Outriggers offer a Novice Training Course for those starting out in the exciting water sport of outrigging. This year the course runs over 2 Saturdays on October 19 and 26. The cost is $125, which includes trained coaches for both men and women, who provide a professional novice programme on all things outrigging. Each novice gets a full manual on history and techniques, bottled water and a BBQ is provided.

At the end of the course, you can sign up to be a full member and the cost of the novice programme comes off the cost of full membership.

Novices can come from the come and try day, enquiries made during the year and anyone interested can give it a go. Although only over 2 weeks, anyone still not confident enough to join in straight away with regular training can paddle a few times on social Sundays until you are comfortable.

Contact us if you have any further questions and please let us know if you are thinking of coming along.
