|New ACA Competition Coordinator - Adam Tremper|
Please welcome Adam Tremper to the ACA Staff!
Adam is the new Competition Coordinator for the ACA and will assist volunteers with the 5 ACA National Championship Events, the Collegiate Race Series, and the 200 paddlesport races the ACA sanctions across the country each year.
He was raised in Stafford County, VA where he ran track and field and cycled competitively. When he wasn't participating in races, he was organizing events for an outdoor activity program for high school students. He moved to Richmond in 2007 to run track for VCU and study education. While in Richmond he discovered whitewater on the James River and began kayaking and rafting with the VCU whitewater club and outdoor adventure program.
After graduation he made a brief move to Buena Vista, Colorado to work as a raft guide, safety kayaker, and kayak instructor. He returned at the end of 2012 to work in the Richmond City Public School system as a teacher and track coach. He still lives in Richmond where he continues to paddle and instruct regularly with his girlfriend Emily.
