Join ACA Chief Operating Officer Chris Stec and FL State Director Tommy Thompson to learn more about the National On-Water Standards (NOWS) program and what it means to your paddlesport program.


US Sailing will be hosting a 1.5-hour training session prior to the Sailing Leadership Forum to provide information about the standards, including tools to help course providers receive the benefits of using the standards in their courses. During the workshop, you will:

  • Learn about the results of this six-year project to develop new ANS for best practice in skills-based instruction in recreational boat operation
  • Receive free copies of the new best practice ANS and a comprehensive checklist to self assess the extent to which your course or program follows the national standards
  • Begin to self-assess your program and receive coaching from experts who developed the ANS, and
  • Learn what you can do to promote your program as following the ANS and reap the benefits of national marketing campaigns.
