The ACA and the City of Rock Hill Active Learning & Living (A.L.L) Outdoors program are excited to offer the second symposium designed to address the specific needs of Level 1 & Level 2 Kayak, Canoe, SUP, and Rescue instructors.


This instructor update and symposium is your chance to increase the quality of the clinics and skills 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 with 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!


Registration is now open! Click here to register!


NEW FOR 2018!! In addition to satisfying the update requirement to maintain your Instructor Certification you will also have the opportunity to get the endorsement to teach Paddlesports Safety Facilitator Certification Courses!  (More info, here). On Sunday we will spend the whole day walking through the key information and skills you need to effectively identify potential PSF markets, plan and execute a PSF course, and evaluate students at the conclusion of the course to determine whether or not they meet the certification criteria.


Save the date and be on the look out for updates coming soon!
