Sponsored by DSUSA Adapt2Achieve program, this 3.5 day APW was designed for paddlesport staff of DSUSA Chapters.

Schedule:
April 21 (evening from 6:30pm-8:30pm)
April 22 – April 24 (8:30am – 5:30pm)

At the core of the ACA Adaptive Program, Adaptive Paddling Workshops (APWs) provide the information necessary to seamlessly integrate individuals with physical disabilities into outdoor recreation programs in the context of paddlesports. ACA Certified Instructors can earn the Adaptive Paddling Endorsement. ACA Instructors can also receive an Update for certification maintenance. Non-Instructors can earn an ACA Certificate of Completion.

For kayakers with physical disabilities (and those interested in becoming kayakers), the final two days of this APW offers a perfect opportunity to learn from experts about how to modify equipment and the techniques to paddle comfortably, safely and with a high level of performance. Participating in the APW will prepare you to join Adaptive Expeditions on kayaking day-trips and expeditions. To participate for free during the final two days of this APW please visit the event website (link provided above).

Paddlesport staff from any DSUSA Chapter who want to register as an Instructor Endorsement Candidate for the entire APW please visit the event website (link provided above).
