The ACA and the City of Rock Hill Active Learning & Living (A.L.L) Outdoors program are excited to offer the first symposium designed to address the specific needs of Level 1 & Level 2 Kayak, Canoe, and SUP instructors. This instructor update and symposium is your chance to increase the quality of the clinics and assessment courses you offer by improving your personal paddling and rescue techniques, learning new teaching methods for beginner paddlers, and enhancing your ability to assess the strokes and body mechanics of your students while providing them with clear, targeted feedback on their technique.  You’ll paddle and learn from Instructor Trainers and Instructor Trainer Educators that have extensive experience working with Level 1 & Level 2 students and instructors across multiple disciplines. We hope you’ll join us for this unique experience!
