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.
The assessment will start at 1900hrs on the course start date when you will meet the assessment staff. During the evening the assessment staff will spend time working through the assessment paperwork and your completed portfolio.
This should allow the following day to be run in as practical a way as possible, utilizing sportscotland Cumbraes facility.
During the assessment you will be expected to deliver two coaching sessions to students during the assessment. You will have time to prepare for this the evening before, when information about the students to be coached will also be given out.Equipment and Kit InformationDaily Schedule
