The American Canoe Association (ACA) was founded in 1880 to provide education and certification in kayaking, canoeing and rafting. The ACA actively supports stewardship of the paddling environment, and enables programs and events to support paddlesport recreation.
This marks the third century that the ACA has actively promoted paddlesports across the U.S., providing programs and services to its members and the American public. The ACA is uniquely qualified to help individuals and organizations understand how paddlesport can contribute to the quality of life through safe and positive paddling experiences.
It is the objective of the ACA to be the recognized, primary resource to individuals, organizations, agencies and regulators for information and guidance on all aspects of paddling.
