|2012 College Race Series - Kayak Race|
In order to maintain consistent rules and safety standards for paddling events throughout the U.S., the ACA provides governance for several non-Olympic paddlesport disciplines through the National Competition Council and various National Activity Committees. The ACA uses the term "discipline" to refer to the type of paddling activity, which is determined by the type of paddle craft and the waterway on which it is used.
Through an extensive network of local volunteers, and partnerships with other organizations, the ACA sanctions over 200 races and produces 6 National Championships each year.
For detailed information about competition in the different disciplines, please visit our Competition webpage.
