Share |

As part of the ACA's leadership role in the paddlesports community, we have transitioned to the new ACA Leadership Academy to target all facets of the paddlesports community.


In partnership with Charleston County Parks & Recreation Commission (CCPRC), the ACA is pleased to present an array of on-water clinics and courses that will help you savor the rich history, remarkable paddling, and ecological diversity of Charleston!


In conjunction with the on-water programming, instructor updates, and networking opportunities, we will be hosting the Safety Education & Instruction Council (SEIC), the PAC Advisory Council, Competition Council, and the ACA Board of Directors.
