Welcome to the Amazing Paddle Challenge 

We are all experiencing so many difficulties through these tough times and Paddle Victoria and the Disciplines would like to support our younger paddlers (U23) by providing a platform to re-engage these paddlers with their peers in the paddling community through the Amazing Paddle Challenge!

Through this 6 week challenge we hope to reconnect our younger paddlers with each other and paddling and encourage them to participate by adding in some fun competition between each other and by offering a cash incentive! (Gift-card prizes)
