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

 

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/. At 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, boat-based 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’.

Being an effective coach of the foundation skills will give your students the best possible start in canoeing or kayaking. Learn from our years of experience doing just that.

We want to help you focus on achieving your goals, so comfortable accommodation (with WIFI included) and good food are part of the deal - you don't need to think about sorting this out for yourself. Support is on hand from our friendly, and exceptionally well qualified, staff to help develop your understanding and personal skills. They also help you to formulate an appropriate action plan for your further development. What's more, you'll have access to our extensive range of paddling equipment and clothing to use whilst honing your chosen skills. You just bring yourself, your 'can do' attitude, and determination to achieve excellence.
