Introducing Steve Sassaman ACA-PA Education Director
It’s my pleasure to welcome Steve into the ACA-PA Executive Council. Currently I’ve not met Steve, but he has a great first name that I’m fond of. He also looks like he is excited about paddle sports and that is exactly what Pennsylvania needs to get the word out about the great padding opportunities in PA. -Steve Barber ACA-PA State Director
Steve Sassaman ACA-PA Education Director
Steve is stoked about recreational paddling.
Steve began paddling in 2004 at a residential summer camp where he taught recreational canoeing. As he continued to develop his passion for teaching others in the outdoors, the water was always a central part of his focus. In 2012 Steve became a member of the ACA and began his coastal kayaking instructional journey. Steve has recently gotten into whitewater kayaking and has dabbled with SUP. Currently he serves as the Assistant Director of Campus Recreation for Outdoor Adventure Pursuits at West Chester University where he coordinates outdoor experiential education programs including backpacking, climbing, and of course paddling. He holds a Master of Education Degree from Abilene Christian University and is a National Outdoor Leadership School Outdoor Educator graduate.
