 2019 Adaptive Events around Ohio


Dynamic Paddlers will be leading a 3-Day ACA Adaptive Paddling Workshop (APW) with LoCo Yaks in Lorain, OH

This course will take place
Saturday June 1 through Monday June 3 in Lorain, OH.

The ACA APW provides the information necessary to seamlessly integrate individuals with physical disabilities
into outdoor recreation programs in the context of paddlesports.

APWs focus on five key topics:
(1) Language, Etiquette and Interaction,
(2) The Legal Context,
(3) Cultivating Seamless Integration,
(4) Adaptive Outfitting Concepts & Goals, and
(5) Mechanics of Adaptive Outfitting for Paddlesports.
APWs involve hands-on learning in both a classroom and in calm, protected waters.

These workshops are designed to provide instructors, outfitters,
recreation program providers, and rehabilitation professionals
with the information they need to integrate paddlers with disabilities into programs.

APWs have a three-fold purpose:

- Provide ACA instructors an opportunity to earn the Adaptive Paddling Instructor Endorsement
- Provide non-ACA instructors an opportunity to earn the ACA Certificate of Completion
- Provide a skills course for individuals with disabilities


For more information about the course and registration,
please contact Stephanee at kayaking.locoyaks@gmail.com
