The Objectives

You'll have built on what you learned on your Performance Coach Core training by applying it practically on white water. You'll leave being one step closer to your Performance Coaching Award.


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

What to Expect

You'll visit as many different white water environments as possible to apply the principles you learned on the Performance Coach Core Training Course. We'll cover considerations for coaching solo or tandem crews during this practical application. On day two, you'll also deliver a practical coaching session to help develop an appropriate action plan.

Experience Required

You'll be a British Canoeing Canoe Coach and have completed British Canoeing Performance Coach Core Training in the last 2 years. In addition, you will have attended at least one British Canoeing Intermediate Module and have experimented with applying its content into your coaching.

Coaching performers over a prolonged period is a very rewarding aspect of coaching. Long-term planning for this process is essential as is developing your paddler's own abilities to analyse and understand their performance.
