Cal Poly offers free adapted paddling program Feb. 24-25

The Feb. 24-25 Adapted Paddling Program at Cal Poly State University in San Luis Obispo, run by students in the Adapted Physical Activity course and instructors from San Luis Obispo County, is seeking participants with disabilities who'd like to enjoy the experience of paddling an adapted kayake both in an indoor pool and outside in Morro Bay.  


Participants will meet their student assistant instructors and take part in a training session and a potluck on Sat., Feb. 24th. The following day, Sun., Feb. 25th, will be the official day out with the team in Morro Bay.  Each day will run from the morning until about 4-5 in the afternoon. 

Local physical and occupational therapists, certified American Canoe Association coastal kayak instructors, and Cal Poly student instructors are all involved in making sure each participant's experience is unique for their disability.  

This free event's registration closes on Feb. 10th and you may contact Lupita Gonzalez at (510) 963-1990 or by e-mail at
