The Makadiff Sports Group helped the AWA reach out beyond our clubs to communities that wanted to train their lifeguards to teach kayaking in their swimming pools. This video profiles our success in 2016-17 to expand into school physical education programs as part of the school curriculum.
These documents will provide useful information about why kayaking is an important physical activity for your students. There is a helpful curriculum guides for school classrooms that you can adopt easily for your class. If you as a teacher want to be trained to teach kayaking - look under the Education Page for the Instructor Manuals and information about becoming certified.
