PADDLERsmart! USA Knowledge Base
Module 05 - Emergency Preparedness
Like with any other sport, improving your skill level is a rewarding practice for paddlers. For additional training, we suggest that you take in-water paddle courses through the American Canoe Association. Taking additional courses will make you a stronger and even more confident paddler!
A paddle craft can be used in nearly every water environment and there are a variety of different paddle craft available to try out. Have fun on the water and remember to pay attention to the regulations and safety concerns that affect your paddle sport of choice as they may change over the years and vary state-by state. It’s your time—grab your paddle and enjoy the water with confidence!
