This is all achievable and will help guide you in the correct direction. Once you have enough experience of putting the theory into practice you can present for a friendly one-day assessment.

During the training courses, you will be introduced to the British Canoeing Coaching Philosophy, Present  Coaching theory and practice along with practical ways to develop paddlers in your chosen discipline.

This course is designed to be a Hands-On practical based course backed up with clever modern theory that will be approached in a way that should be understandable without too much time spent in the classroom. The training courses are then backed up the E-learning through British Canoeing.
