Adaptive Paddling Workshops

These workshops are designed to provide instructors, outfitters, recreation program providers, and rehabilitation professionals with the information they need to integrate paddlers with disabilities into their 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. The workshop includes how to compensate for paddlers loss of function due to disability, how to adapt equipment and instruction and how to focus on the paddlers' ability. This course includes a classroom and hands-on learning, an on-water pool session and open water paddling. ACA certified paddling instructors can receive the Adaptive Paddling Endorsement upon completion of this workshop. 

 

An Adaptive Paddling Workshop (APW) has a three-fold purpose:

  • Train currently certified ACA instructors to earn the Adaptive Paddling Endorsement
  • Educate and provide assisting individuals with a Certificate of Completion
  • Provide a skills course for individuals with disabilities
