The Objectives

You'll have gained invaluable guidance to help you achieve your Coach Award Qualifications, and have your own action plan to help your development continue. If you're not working towards the qualification, you'll go away with plenty of practical guidance to support your ongoing learning and development.

Itinerary

* Please note: Itinerary is subject to weather and availability.

What to Expect


You'll spend day one applying the Coach Core behaviours to the sheltered water environment. On day two, you'll apply these principles practically as part of a coaching session. You'll have peer feedback and observation as well as trainer feedback. We'll then finish with an action planning session to prepare you for assessment.


Experience Required

You should have; | | Full Home Nation Association Membership | Core Coach Training | u00a0| Your personal paddling skills should be well developed so that the full focus of the the course is on coaching skills. British Canoeing have provided a checklist to help you review your skills. This can be found in Appendix 3 of the Coach Course Guide which can be found at https://www.britishcanoeing.org.uk/.u00a0At the point of attending your Sheltered Water Training, we recommend that of the skills listed in the British Canoeing Guidance, most are 'always' or 'sometimes' present in your performance. This strong base of personal skills should then set you up well to focus on developing your coaching practice. You will need good knowledge of the discipline(s) you wish to coach as this provides the content of WHAT you will be coaching. Prior to training, boatu2022based coaches should ensure that their personal skills (and leadership skills) are well practiced. This allows you to focus on developing your 'coaching', rather than your 'paddling'.
