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.

There are 18 options available covering all of our main disciplines and environments.

Prerequisites

Core Coach Training Prerequisites

  • Full Home Nation Association Membership

You will also need a base level of knowledge about the discipline(s) you wish to coach; this provides the content of WHAT you will be coaching.
