FreeStyle Canoeing Competition

Special lifejacket exemption for national level competitionThe FreeStyle Canoeing Committee is an ACA National Activity Committee whose purpose is to Promote FreeStyle canoeing as a convenient lifestyle sport and encourage its growth through the development of recreational and educational programs. Foster the development of FreeStyle paddling skills through the establishment and maintenance of an instructional curriculum consistent with ACA Safety Education and Instruction Council (SEIC) guidelines.Develop an instructional format and train and certify instructors, consistent with SEIC guidelines, to provide interested students with information on FreeStyle technique. Develop competitive events stressing FreeStyle paddling skills and encourage participation.

FreeStyle Canoeing is the "art and science" of quiet water paddling. FreeStyle Canoeing emphasizes smooth, efficient flatwater paddling and precision boat control. FreeStyle can be applied to all canoeing situations.Many FreeStylers paddle to music making an expressible, interpretive art form. FreeStyle paddling requires no special equipment other than a boat, a paddle, a life jacket, and in most cases a kneeling pad.
