This 3 day program introduces SUP paddlers to the skills and knowledge required to teach the Paddle Canada Introductory SUP Programs. We’ll review your paddling skills and add to your practical group management, lesson planning, and assessment skills.

Specifically, successful candidates will be able to teach the Paddle Canada Introduction to SUP and custom curriculum based on these courses.
