Uniting people and water!
New policies in effect:
To promote ourselves as an active group all members must attend one trip per season.
Those who RSVP and do not show up are considered inactive and will be removed from the group.
Any member who has not participated in at least one event during the season will also be removed.
Northern Virginia Water Sports members are a diverse group of laid back individuals who just want to get on, in, or be near the water, relax, and enjoy a few hours of sunshine. The membership comprises of paddlers, boaters, skiers, SCUBA divers, and those who participate in other types of water sport activities.
While the main theme of the group has focused on kayaking, a wildly popular activity in this area, new activities are being added such as beach volleyball and tubing. The aim is to continually increase membership participation by spreading around the activities.
Whether you have joined us in the past or have been sitting on the sidelines waiting for an interesting activity come on out and at least say hi. We promise not to feed you to the fish!
Welcome, Water Sports enthusiast!
