Welcome to the 2023 Paddle Season and Our Kailua Canoe Club ‘Ohana!

Aloha- I am Julie Madden and it is my honor and privilege to return for another year to serve as President of the Kailua Canoe Club Board of Directors for Kailua’s 51st year!

If you are new to our Kailua ‘Ohana – welcome, if returning, mahalo and welcome back!

Big MAHALO to all of our Coaches, the Board of Directors, our members, and their ‘ohana, for a successful first season back last year, after our 2-year pandemic break. It’s amazing what we can do together. It was so wonderful to see generations, literally, of ‘ohana back out on the water together. This year let’s grow even more!

As stated in our Mission Statement- we strive to give members “a sense of family and community in conjunction with the ocean” and to “paddle with passion and excellence, and live the values represented by the word “Aloha”

L – Lōkahi – Unity, expressed with harmony

O – ‘Olu‘olu – Agreeable, expressed with pleasantness

H – Ha‘aha‘a – Humility, expressed with modesty

 Welcome to the family! Wishing you passion, excellence, and much Aloha! See you on the water!


My name is Rob Cates and I am the Head Coach for Kailua Canoe Club.  I have been a paddler for Kailua Canoe Club for over 50 years.

I look forward to guiding the coaches and paddlers of Kailua Canoe Club in the 2023 season and building on last year’s results.  By encouraging more paddlers to actively participate in our programs, together we can grow our club and continue to provide a safe, fun and competitive environment for our members.
