You're an active sea kayak coach and want to extend your coaching remit and repertoire to include advanced conditions (sea state 5, Beaufort wind 5 and above, Advanced surf (1m>) and tidal flow over 2 knots). On this two day practical course, our experts will work with you to explore different approaches to coaching, understanding and enabling learning. You'll develop some core coaching skills as they apply to coach Sea Kayaks in Advanced Tidal Waters. We'll also help you to compile your personal coaching development plan to take away and continue putting what you learn into practice.
