At the core of the ACA Adaptive Program, Adaptive Paddling Workshops (APWs) provide the information necessary to seamlessly integrate individuals with physical disabilities into outdoor recreation programs in the context of paddlesports. ACA Certified Instructors can earn the Adaptive Paddling Endorsement.  ACA Instructors can also receive an Update for certification maintenance.  This course is also open to non-Instructors, who can earn an ACA Certificate of Completion.

For kayakers with physical disabilities (and those interested in becoming kayakers), the final day of this APW offers a perfect opportunity to learn from experts about how to modify equipment and the techniques to paddle comfortably, safely, and with a high level of performance.  To participate for free during the final day of this APW please call Joe Moore at Adaptive Expeditions (843.637.7269), email, or use this registration link.  Register Here
