When Sherri Mertz attended her first Canoecopia back in 1988, she never dreamed she would one day be a presenter. Since buying her first canoe that year, Sherri has become an ACA-certified Level 4 Coastal Kayak Instructor, an Level 3 River Kayak Instructor, an Level 2 Canoe Instructor, and an Level 1 SUP Instructor. She was the paddle sports department manager for almost 9 years at an outdoor store in Milwaukee, and in 2009 started her own full-time business offering paddle sports instruction. In addition to doing presentations throughout the weekend, you can also meet her at the American Canoe Association booth where she will be promoting the PaddleSafely campaign.



Presentations

 Dressing for Paddling
Killarney - Clarion Hotel Sat 9:30am-10:15am 
Killarney - Clarion Hotel Sun 10:30am-11:15am 

One of the most common questions asked by new paddlers is "What should I wear?" The short answer is that you should always dress for immersion, but what does that really mean? Long-time paddler and instructor, Sherri will give you some guidelines and suggestions for how to dress in a variety of conditions from the tropics to the arctic and everything in between.



 Kayaking With Your Core
Atrium - upstairs Fri 6:30pm-7:15pm 

Most people think kayaking requires a lot of upper body strength. If that's what you think, you're probably doing it wrong and working harder than you have to. Learn how to harness the power of your core in order to paddle more efficiently and effectively.
