Nova Craft Canoe and Canoe Kentucky are proud to be partners in sponsoring the 2012 National School for Paddlesport Business offered by the Professional Paddlesport Association (PPA). The 2012 National School will be hosted by Adventures Unlimited Outdoor Center in Milton Florida on February 5, 6 and 7.

The National School for Paddlesports Business is a program offered on a 2 year module that will teach, educate, and share basic to advanced valuable information and knowledge to anyone that operates a successful and profitable Paddlesport business. If you are an Outfitter, Camp or Institution that offers hourly to week long Canoe, Kayak, Raft or Tube trips, this is a great opportunity for you and/or your staff.

Small business with 5 to 20 canoes or kayaks? This is an opportunity to learn how to maximize your investment and minimize your expenses. You will learn the tricks and trade secrets that will allow you to save time and money as well as retain your staff from one year to another. Instruction on developing a release form that will protect your assets – and information on water, transportation and camping regulations are benefits that should help you sleep better.

Medium size business with 20 to 80 boats? You don’t need to wait until November to finally have a relaxing weekend holiday. Register some of your key staff or a manager. They will learn how to deal with customer service, management of staff and tricks of the trade. Who knows, they might come back so energetic for the summer that you will be amazed at how they can help the growth of your business. It is proven that an increase in salary is not always what an employee is looking for, being able to get involved and see results is often the most rewarding part of someone’s job.

You have a larger operation, and have lost track of how many boats you have? If you have reached this point in time, you’ve probably been in business for a long, long time. How can the National School for Paddlesport Business serve your business?

From experience, the majority of these businesses are often a retirement plan. Who is better to purchase your business, keep your loyal customers satisfied and keep your legacy moving forward? Well, that would most likely be your kids or one of your passionate staff members. It is time right now to invest in your retirement plan, give them an opportunity to know what you know, to get them in touch with reality and get them to start dreaming about one day running your business. Whether they buy your business, or purchase some share of it, the ultimate goal is for you to have a great return on your investment and get the freedom to enjoy life after so many years of hard work.
