Sutherland Shire Canoe Club & COVID-19

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have implemented guidelines to enable limited opening of our Club. These guidelines reflect directives from the Australian Government, NSW Government, Paddle NSW and Paddle Australia.

We recommend all club visitors read and become familiar with the COVID-19 Safety Plan – available below. John Denyer is the Club’s COVID-19 Safety Officer.
