2018 ACA Open Canoe Nationals

Clinics

Slalom

We are proud to offer pre race slalom clinics by notable ACA instructor and former US team member Kent Ford. Kent will be running clinics as a fundraiser component of the Open Canoe Nationals.  Kent raced his first Open Canoe Nationals sometime in the 80's, won C-2 the last time the Nationals were in Colorado.  Kent raced internationally back in the day, and went on to work as public address announcer at 5 Slalom Olympics. But most importantly, his teaching style is fun, informative, and engaging.  More about Kent at http://www.performancevideo.com/kent_ford
