Our Mission is to provide our members with education and skill in paddling and a sense of the ancient cultural traditions and aloha spirit which embodies the sport of Hawaiian Outrigger Canoe Racing, to practice with respect and care for our waterways, to expose as many people as possible to the sport, to encourage our “Ohana” (family) to grow – from recreational paddlers to serious racers – to give back to the community by sharing the team building principals of outrigger paddling with corporations and charitable organizations, and to represent Lake Havasu in a positive and welcoming manner.
The Lake Havasu City Outrigger Canoe Club (LHCOCC) was formed to encourage, maintain and perpetuate the Pacific Island culture and traditions that are rooted in the sport of outrigger canoeing with Honor and Respect. Most of all, just to have fun!
You will learn the safety techniques and how to paddle in a 6-man outrigger canoe with five other paddlers for recreation or competition. Our club is a member of the Southern California Outrigger Racing Association(SCORA), where our competitive paddlers can compete in different CA, AZ and NV venues.
We meet at Paddler’s Beach, the north end of Rotary Park.
