If you’re looking to coach white water kayak on moderate water, this two day training focuses on how to coach the technical and tactical skills for white water kayakers. This practical based course will help you plan and deliver safe, enjoyable, progressive coaching sessions and you’ll explore the specifics to help you coach some typical learners relevant to you and the white water environment.
This Discipline Specific Training is a mostly practical two day course. The training is designed for those working towards a Coach Award and is also suitable as stand-alone training. Please note, for the Open Water Canoe, Sea Kayak, Surf Kayak, White Water Canoe, White Water Kayak options, you will need to complete the relevant Leadership Award ahead of the Discipline Specific training.
The Independent and Supplementary Learning includes completion of the Coach Award eLearning, which can be accessed by completing a CR Form. Alongside face-to-face training, coaches need to learn and develop their craft out in the field. We consider this to be a critical element to support coach development and we aim to provide some guidance to help you steer your way through this. During your development period (and in preparation for assessment) it is important that you engage in activities that help you:
- practice and refine the application of theory to practice
- develop as an effective learner
