The workshop includes how to compensate for a 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, and a pool session. All completing this workshop receive a certificate of completion. ACA certified paddling instructors receive the Adaptive Paddling Endorsement and also ACA Update credit applied to their paddling instructor certification - upon completion of this 2-day workshop.

This is a stand alone course and National Paddlesports Conference or SUP Summit registration is not included in the fee. In addition, ACA Membership is required for this course, but is not included in the above fee.
