Welcome to USA Outrigger

Racing Canoe Association!

After many years as separate organizations representing the mainland USA at international outrigger (va'a, wa'a) race events, the mainland is now unified under one umbrella while Hawaii will continue to stand on its own at the international racing level! We welcome each of our  founding member associations and their paddlers, coaches and supporters:  Southern California Outrigger Canoe Association (SCORA), Northern California Outrigger Canoe Association (NCOCA), Pacific Northwest Outrigger Racing Canoe Association (PNW-ORCA), and East Coast Outrigger Racing Association (ECORA).
