WWSR & WW Kayak Leader Training
Ty Nant & Sal Montgomery Collaboration
Fast Track to Leader Excellence
We have often thought that the best way to get trained up to become a British Canoeing Whitewater kayak leader is to do both the training course and the WWSR combined.
We just made this 4-day course even better by inviting the incredibly skilled saftey and world-class WW kayak leader Sal Montgomery along to assist us and share her wealth of Knowledge. Join us on this refreshing take to one of our UK leading British Canoeing Courses.
This course will combine both 2-day courses based on rivers around North Wales enabling you to fast track and prepare for an assessment.
