Paddlesports: Canoe - Kayak - SUP - Raft - Rescue...and FUN!


National Paddlesports Conference


There are many goals set out for the NPC. Some of these are networking and social events; while others are expanding educational understanding and accepting the latest and greatest ways to teach the sports we so love.

In an attempt to set the educational bar high; we have added an unprecedented 3 day Instructor Trainer Update and a 2 day Instructor Update as part of this year’s conference. The updates will be facilitated by the legendary trio of Ben Lawry, Josh Hall and Peter Casson and will involve several educational sessions, hands on learning and much more.

Please Click Here for more information on this impressive opportunity to update your certification or to learn more about the NPC.



In order for the ACA to continue to support, promote, and grow paddlesports, we rely on membership dues, grant funding, and support from paddlers just like you.

Now, you can donate to a specific paddlesport program area: Education, Stewardship, Competition or Adaptive Paddling. Thank you for your consideration.
