BRITISH CANOEING COACH AWARD.
The Coach Award offers discipline specific pathways across all disciplines and introduces the skills and coaching behaviours required for developing performance through progressive coaching.
The Coach Awards are designed for people whose core function is to coach paddlers who want to gain/improve paddlesport skills within the discipline chosen. This will include coaching beginners new to the sport, or paddlers looking to develop their skills in the given discipline/environment. The coach is able to plan, deliver and review progressive sessions safely, effectively and independently.
The majority of the courses are spent out on the water in your chosed craft. The practical sessions are combined with theoretical sessions in the classroom which embeds the fundamentals of quality coaching and safety.
Successful completion of the CORE COACH training course then allows you to progress on to the two day DISCIPLINE SPECIFIC TRAINING course in your chosen discipline interest area. Once the DST is completed, you take your journey through to COACH ASSESSMENT.
