The SKPC is also a member of the Alberta Whitewater Association and as such is covered under the AWA’s liability insurance for club events. To benefit from this insurance, when signing up to become an SKPC club member you must also fill out an online AWA membership and waiver form for the hefty sum of $1.

In addition to our own form above, please also fill out the Alberta Whitewater Association Waiver here by selecting the Somba K’e Paddling Club from the “Notify your Club” drop down menu, and fill out the online membership form and waiver.

You will be required to show proof of AWA registration at all club events.
