ACA L3 & L4 Update for L3 & L4 Coastal Kayak Instructors

Sept 11th - 12th, 2020

(starting Friday noon & ending Saturday afternoon)

 
 

This will be a fun & relaxing time for instructors to get together & share ideas about how to be better kayak instructors. We’ll paddle appropriate sections of Lake Superior around Washburn & Bayfield. Some of the recent changes in the ACA will be reviewed, including the new Course Management System. Cost = $150.

 

ACA Coastal Kayak L4 Instructor Certification Workshop

&

Rough Water Weekend

October 1st - 4th, 2020​

This is a popular course for those who want to get some experience in rougher water. We’ll be looking for conditions where we have 3-5 foot waves. We’ll be focusing on surfing, rescues in rough water, general paddling in waves & wind, as well as around rocks. We’ll have some good presentations & practice on navigation, tides, & special considerations on risk management.

  

Cost = $300.

 

For infection prevention, we ask that if you’ve had close contact (over 15 min. within 6 feet of someone with COVID, you cancel) & we’ll keep these courses small.

Those who are L3 Instructors with experience may be able to upgrade to L4 during the course. Others maybe able to get an L4 Skill Assessment.
