Understanding of Risk
Careful reading and understanding of the American Canoe Association Waiver and Release of Liability is required for everyone taking part in Arkansas Canoe Club's School of River Paddling. Signing the waiver is your acknowledgment that you understand the terms of the waiver and that you fully accept responsibility for the serious risks and dangers inherent in whitewater paddling. Parents or legal guardians must co-sign with those under the age of eighteen.
Waivers and other required documents will be emailed to the email associated with the registration as we get closer to the actual event.
Your registration to the school is not final until we receive these documents!
American Whitewater: Safety Code

The Arkansas Canoe Club requires all participants to be a minimum of 14 years old before attending this particular school. (**Younger participants may be considered, but must contact the Director to discuss prior to registration). We require that all minors under the age of 18 have a signed Medical Release Form signed and sent to the School Director, along with the waiver.
