British Canoeing Coach Award Core Training 

The British Canoeing coach Award Core training is the Standard Entry Course to the British Canoeing Coach Award system.

Two Day Course

On this two day course, 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 course is then backed up by some E-learning through British Canoeing.

This course can be used as a stand-alone two-day course used to improve coaching practice, used as a CPD or Coach update for your present coaching qualifications awards or as the entry course before choosing the next step Discipline Specific Training (DST) in your Chosen Craft. 

See links below to your options for your DST, there are different pre-requites for each option.


It is assumed that all candidates will participate using their own appropriate equipment however if this is a problem to get in touch.


This course can be run from several different locations – Llyn Padarn, Llyn Tegid, or at your suitable venue.


Please feel free to get in touch with us if you would like some advise as to the best course for you.

We had a great time on the Chirk tunnel and aqueduct SUP tour. Chris was friendly and knowledgeable and the equipment was very high quality.
