ACA Training included with NACK Membership


As part of their paid membership all NACK members will get the opportunity to participate in the American Canoe Association Quickstart training program taught by ACA Certified instructors. The North Atlantic Canoe & Kayak Training Committee has decided to establish this new membership benefit, worth $75.00, as a way for new paddlers to get started enjoying paddling safely and efficiently.

QuickStart is a brief, three-hour introduction to paddling a kayak. Students are presented with basic information on dressing to paddle safely, potential hazards and simple rescues. A minimal paddle skill set is presented and practiced, allowing students to safely and comfortably maneuver on still water. While designed as a stand-alone, introductory course, QuickStart students often progress to the Introduction to Kayak course to acquire greater paddling skill through significantly more in depth, guided, on-water practice time.
