Join now and your a member to the end of 2024.

Fees support all our programs, providing benefits for members and the paddling community.

But if you want to check us out, come as a guest.

Be sure you are signed in for the correct account when renewing. Each account must have a unique email, including children’s as that’s how we track sign ups and waivers.

Full Membership

A waiver is also required to participate in on water activities, including pool sessions.
Voting rights if over 18.


Under 18. Must be accompanied by a responsible adult on all activities. For pool sessions this can be an observer who stays in the bleacher area, but for trips this must be a participating member or guest.


If you feel our normal fee is too much, we leave it up to you. Due to the high cost of insurance and the many other services we offer we are losing money on the average low income membership. A waiver is also required to participate in on-water activities, including pool sessions.


Allows for participation in off water activities.

Your membership fees support:

  • Partial scholarships for people taking ACA instructor certification courses.
  • Upfront costs for pool sessions.
  • Purchase of equipment to get folks started whitewater paddling.
  • A full schedule of river trips and flat water practice sessions including upfront costs for campsites and food.
  • A leadership role in the battle for river access, and support for like-minded organizations.
  • And sadly, administrative costs such as accounting software, website hosting and insurance. We have no paid staff but could certainly use your help.

However, if cost is a barrier for joining KCCNY and participating in our activities, please contact us or reach out to any board member and we’ll do our best to work something out.
