Slalom Nationals. Photo Courtesy of John ThompsonThe ACA is committed to developing and promoting athletic competition in paddlesport at the local, regional and national levels.

In order to maintain consistent rules and safety standards for paddling events throughout the United States, the ACA provides governance for several non-Olympic paddlesport disciplines through the National Competition Council and various National Activity Committees. The ACA uses the term "discipline" to refer to the type of paddling activity, which is determined by the type of paddle craft and the waterway on which it is used.

Through an extensive network of local volunteers, and partnerships with other organizations, the ACA sanctions over 200 races and produces 6 national championships each year.
