Join the NAC/MAKAPO Team Mixed Plate Paddling Team to engage in weekly outrigger paddling and life skills activities. Team Mixed Plate welcomes children ages 11 -18 years with disabilities, as well as their family and friends. Members of the TMP Paddling Team will experience the many benefits of outrigger paddling such as physical activity and cardiovascular fitness, immersion into a rich sensory experience, social-emotional skill development, and community building while also encouraging teamwork, building self-confidence, and developing an appreciation for being on and around the water.
