We love new members from all backgrounds and abilities. We are passionate about ensuring everyone has the opportunity to have a go on the water and to achieve their goals whatever they might be, from completing a trip on the Broads to paddling for Great Britain.

It is also funded by British Canoeing as a Talent Club Hub for the Eastern Region, we develop athletes for acceptance into the Olympic Talent Pathway and International Competitions.
Equality and Inclusivity
Norwich Canoe Club recognises that we live in a diverse society and therefore we endeavour to ensure that all visitors and members are given the same opportunities regardless of their characteristics or socio-economic backgrounds.
Norwich Canoe Club is fully committed to the principles of equality and opportunity for all. We want to ensure that everyone has a genuine and equal opportunity to participate in Paddlesport at all levels and in all roles of the sport, irrespective of age; disability; gender reassignment; marriage and civil partnership; pregnancy and maternity; race; religion or belief; sex and sexual orientation.
In addition, Norwich Canoe Club endeavours to ensure that all are given the same opportunities regardless of their socio-economic background. This includes members, volunteers, participants, supporters, coaches and officials. To this end we offer hardship bursaries for those who need financial help to be a member of the club.
Canoeing for disabled people
We have developed a strong Paddle-Ability programme that focuses on increasing regular participation for disabled people in canoeing. There is also a British Canoeing Paracanoe programme for individuals who aspire to compete at the Paralympics. Norwich supports athletes wishing to enter the Paracanoe programme. Canoeing is a fantastic sport for people with a disability with a wide range of opportunities, activities and adaptations to meet individual needs.
Norwich Canoe Club recognises that it has a duty to make reasonable adjustments for disabled persons. The club considers all requests for adjustments and where possible will accommodate reasonable requests and will work with disabled Stakeholders to implement any adjustments that will enable them to participate more fully in all canoeing activities.
