New York Outrigger strives to create a safe environment for training to allow all of our members to develop into safe, competent and experienced paddlers. As a group, we want to promote the sport of outrigger canoeing in New York City with integrity, goodwill and competitive team spirit while bringing community pride to our surrounding waters. It is our hope that in creating strong paddlers, we also create strong leaders who, in turn, will enhance not only NYO but also the local community.

Our paddlers represent a true cross-section of New York City and with that diverse membership comes a diverse set of expectations. Ranging from recreational paddlers to the competitive athlete, New York Outrigger has a seat for all members.
