The Kansas City Paddler Instruction Program is expanded -- offering canoe, SUP and kayak clinics.
Lynn Lyon has a particular passion for introducing children and youth to paddling as a means of fostering a sense of independence and enhanced self-esteem in preparation for the "River of Life."
Lynn has established a paddlesports program for urban youth in the greater Kansas City area. This program provides an opportunity for these young people to experience the joy and support of being connected to nature as well as experience a sense of confidence and pride as they start to explore new horizons for their lives.
The Paddlesports Industry Association awarded Lynn Lyon the 2007 PIA Award in recognition of his on-going efforts to involve children and youth in paddlesports as well as the continued commitment of Kansas City Paddler in supporting paddlesports in the central Midwest region.
