The Objectives

This aim of this course is to help you to start the necessary skills development to design, manage, monitor and analyse effective coaching as part of an annual programme.


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

What to Expect

You'll spend day one looking at performance profiling, with day two focusing on coaching strategies for long-term retention. Your third day will be spent coaching and developing an action plan.

Experience Required

You need to be active as a coach in moderate water conditions. You'll also need to have completed British Canoeing Coach Core Training and a British Canoeing Applied Coach training in your chosen discipline. You should have attended the Intermediate Coaching the Mind module.

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. The Performance Coach course will help you to develop these essential skills.
