About Us

Ocoee River, TN

The Atlanta Whitewater Club (AWC) was founded by a group of dedicated Atlanta kayakers and canoeists to increase the safety, skills, and enjoyment of whitewater boating. AWC holds many events where Atlanta paddlers can meet and mingle, such as monthly meetings and seasonal picnics.

We are committed to river safety and conservation, offerring opportunities for education and skill building, such as monthly speakers and safety classes. AWC is an affiliate member of American Whitewater (www.americanwhitewater.org) and tries to support AW's mission locally, for example by coordinating river clean-ups throughout the year. Many of the rivers we paddle regularly are accessed and/or have scheduled releases thanks to American Whitewater's tireless efforts, so consider supporting by joining AW--and receive a discount with your Atlanta Whitewater membership.

For details on upcoming events, see the Events page. Come check out a monthly meeting or join us on the next scheduled trip! In addition, AWC has an email list via Yahoo! Groups for members and friends to communicate about upcoming river trips and boating-related topics. See Join AWC for information on AWC membership and instructions to sign up for the email list.
