Welcome to the Mid-Atlantic Paddlers Association (MAPA) website. MAPA is a non-profit organization that promotes all forms of competitive canoe and kayak paddle sports in the Mid-Atlantic area. MAPA sponsors and participates in many paddle sport events that encompass all aspects of canoeing, SUP and kayaking. Competitions and practices are held in every type of water condition from flat water to white water. MAPA is affiliated with the American Canoe Association (ACA) and all active members receive all the benefits of ACA membership at a greatly reduced rate. MAPA actively participates in environmental, public access and safety programs and encourages recreationally and athletically motivated persons to participate in paddle sports. MAPA values are Camaraderie, Coaching, Conservation and Competition in all forms of paddle sports.
