I have been a big supporter for Paddle Canada for many years as both a member and active instructor. They also hold a warm and fizzy spot on my heart when I worked there for four years as their program coordinator helping to roll out the (at the time) new sea kayaking instruction program.
If you are interested in checking out the list of free stuff available, head over to our instructor resource repository. I’m working on trying to come up with a catchier name as it sounds too much like instructor resource suppository. Let me know if you can come up with something better...
PaddlingInstructor.com Announces Partnership with Paddle CanadaFriday, 19 February 2010
I am very pleased to announce an official partnership with Paddle Canada. We are going to work together to provide resources and lesson plans for their canoe and kayak instructors.
The partnership seems like a natural fit for both of us. Paddle Canada offers a really top notch instructor program but with only one paid staff, it’s difficult to expand the list resources for instructors. I am very happy to step in an open up the library to all of their members.
David Johnston has been introducing people to the sport of sea kayaking for the past 15 years. He is a senior instructor trainer with Paddle Canada and teaches for several paddling schools in Ontario, Canada. Full Bio.
