During the training, you will explore subjects that will help you understand:
- The learning journey of the paddlers you coach
- How to coach learners with different needs
- Structures for practice, to enable your learners to get the most from sessions on the water with you.
Around the main sessions you will also explore (with the support of your tutors):
- Your role as a coach
- Maximising your development through reflective practice and your personal development plan.
There is no pre-requisite training required for participation in the Core Coach Training and the only course requirement is that you are a member of British Canoeing (BC Membership) if you want results submitted.
It is highly recommended that learners complete a Coach Registration Form (CR), this will provide you with access to Core Coach and Develop your Coaching Craft e-learning.
