Freestyle Canoeing: A National Activity Committee of the ACA

Members of the FreeStyle community enjoy sharing--through competition, demonstrations and teaching--the basic skills used to efficiently and gracefully paddle both tandem and solo canoes.

FreeStylers refer to paddle skill development as obedience training for the canoe. With the development of proper paddle handling and placement, they promise that any canoe will learn to respond with precision and grace.

Freestyle Canoeing is an activity committee of the American Canoe Association. Each year members of the committee organize symposiums and workshops around the country. Each of these events include:

· Paddling instruction for the Novice

· Tuning classes for the experienced

· Special skills development workshops

· Demonstrations and Competitions in both Solo and Tandem Canoeing

Classes are small, with no more than 5 students per instructor. Instructors are all ACA certified.
