Assessments and Advanced Skill Development

Thinking about becoming an Instructor?  The assessment process provides insight into your current skill level as defined by the American Canoe Association.  Assessments are non-coaching sessions.

Assessment Courses

ACA Assessment courses have been developed as a tool to allow paddlers a clear progression of skill development. Courses provide progression in skills and paddling venues associated with specific disciplines and paddlecraft. Upon successful completion of each Skills Assessment checklist, we will submit the paperwork to the ACA and you will receive official documentation of your level of skill from the ACA National Office.

Note: to receive Skills Assessment documentation, you must be a current ACA member.
