This booklet focuses on the five main topics relevant in paddlesports safety, called the L.I.F.E.R. Principle.

L - Life Jacket

I - Immersion

F - File a Float Plan

E - Evaluate Your Venue

R - Return Safely


This booklet covers the basic principles behind paddling, such as an introduction to the forward stroke, sweep strokes, and the draw stroke. The booklet also covers various paddlecraft that youth may encounter: Canoes, Kayaks, Stand Up Paddleboards, and Rafts!


Throughout the booklet, there are games to check for understanding of key principles and topics while keeping the youth and families engaged.


With this resource, we can help create a more conscious paddling community and help further safe paddling practices. So, please help the ACA by creating life-long paddlers that follow the L.I.F.E.R. Principle!
