An assessment as a Sheltered Water Canoe and/or Kayak Coach matches the remit and learning of an existing L2 Coach without any endorsements.
The two days will be a very practical and progressive exploration of the WHAT and WHERE to coach the discipline specific skills. The training explores how to coach technical and tactical skills within the given environment. The course will help you plan and deliver safe, enjoyable, progressive coaching sessions and explore specifics to help coaches coach some typical athletes/learners relevant to your discipline.
Prior to this training, you should ensure that your personal and group skills are well practiced, allowing you to focus on developing your coaching rather than your paddling during the course. While not pre-requisites, the British Canoeing 3 Star Touring and Paddlesport Leader training provide ideal preparation and act as a useful guide to the standards required on a Coach Award Assessment. The course guide includes further information and a useful checklist of the skills required.On completion of this course, you will have a clear pathway to assessment, and have the knowledge of how to complete the Coach Award e-learning course. You will also have an understanding of what needs to be consolidated and completed before progressing to assessment.
