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. For many this will be the second step on the coaching pathway and this core coach training course aims to develop the fundamental coaching concepts learnt during the paddlesports instructor course. We will teach you topics including best coaching principles, ethics, equipment and safe practice, as well as add to your coaching repertoire with useful tips and advice along the way.
Candidates are required to register with their Home Nation Association at any point on their journey to assessment. It is highly recommended that coaches register early to enable access to the eLearning Coach Award package which provides supportive material and signposting to development opportunities. In order to register, candidates need to hold Home Nation Association membership. There is no expiry date to the registration.
