One of the goals of ‘Ohana Wa’a Laulima is providing opportunities to individuals who normally wouldn’t be able to paddle on other teams. We take pride in being able to serve so many different Athletes all with a wide array of abilities.
How Can You Help as a Volunteer
As a Paddler
Experienced paddlers, especially those comfortable steering or being a stroker are always needed.
Helping Athletes in and out of canoes (transfers). We would like to train all volunteers on the best practices of helping Athletes of all abilities in and out of canoes as getting in and out is one of the most common ways for any paddler to get injured
