Junior development is an important development area for AOCRA NSW. We believe that outrigger canoeing provides a great environment for children and young persons to experience team work and discipline, and develop life skills that will help them grow into responsible adults. We provide this development, not necessarily with the knowledge that a junior will develop into a world champion, but with the belief that we provide the child with a gift and the community with a benefit.

Ocean sports such as outrigger canoeing provides a different environment, which can spark changes not seen in regular on-land activities.

The NSW Government is constantly refining the process for enable adults to "Work With Children". AOCRA NSW aligns with their guidelines to allow our junior development to occur in a responsible manner.
