The Coach Award offers discipline specific pathways across all disciplines and introduces the skills and coaching behaviors required for developing performance through progressive coaching.
The Coach Awards are designed for people whose core function is to coach paddlers who want to gain/improve paddle sport 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 core training is the first training course to help you become a qualified coach. On this course you will learn about how and why to coach. After this course you will then be able to choose the discipline you would like to be a coach off and complete 2 days of further training.
