New Membership


Ascot Kayak Club (AKC) is Australia’s largest kayak/canoe club and has a strong focus on developing all aspects of kayaking as a sport and recreational activity in Western Australia.

We are volunteer run and provide a safe and inclusive environment where you can learn good kayaking/canoeing skills, receive coaching from experienced and qualified members, access structured training programs, compete in club and paddle sport events and gain experience and knowledge of our beautiful waterways. We’re not all about competition! We have a large contingent of recreational and social members. All are welcome at AKC


Our membership year runs from 1 October to 30 September.

The membership fees are pro-rated from 1 April.

All new Adult / Concession members are required to pay a once-off building amenity fee of $120.00.

All members are expected to make a volunteer contribution to the club each year

All members are affiliated to Paddle WA and Paddle Australia who provide cover for Personal Accident and Public Liability Insurance. An affiliation fee is paid from your club membership fee. See member benefits HERE
