APWs are designed to provide instructors, outfitters, recreation program providers, and rehabilitation professionals with the information they need to integrate paddlers with physical disabilities into paddlesport programs.  Under the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990, a person may not be excluded from a program just because they have a disability.  Program providers need to be prepared to integrate persons with disabilities into existing programs.  This two and a half day workshop includes instruction about how to compensate for a paddler’s loss of function due to a physical disability, how to adapt equipment and instruction and how to focus on the paddlers' ability.   This interactive workshop includes a classroom and hands-on learning component as well as an on-water pool session.   ACA certified paddlesport instructors will receive the ACA Adaptive Paddlesport Endorsement upon successful completion of this workshop.  This Endorsement can apply one time as an ACA Level 1 & 2 Instructor Certification Update.

Please email Kelly Gosset at the address below to register as a paddlesport student participant or as an ACA Adaptive Endorsement candidate.
