The American Canoe Association (ACA) River Safety and Rescue workshop teaches essential boating safety; recognition and avoidance of common river hazards, execution of self-rescue techniques, and simple rescues of paddlers in distress.

  • Develop and practice key self-rescue skills.
  • Identify and avoid river hazards by understanding hydrology, hazards, and river features.
  • Focus on fast, low-risk strategies for early management of river accidents
  • Practice methods for recovering swimmers, and loose boats and equipment
