This is a great course for anyone wanting to coach and help others achieve their goals and aspirations in advanced environments. Your course will be based on the incredible Exmoor coastline, we have some of the best advanced water coaching venues in the country – from Tide races and overfalls, to rock-hopping and some of Europe’s finest and most consistent surf beaches. Having the second largest tidal range in the world and being fully exposed to Atlantic swell we can almost guarantee we’ll have the conditions you need to develop your coaching practise…it’s also a stunning place to paddle!

Advanced water coaching isn’t all about paddling in advanced conditions, it’s about recognising what your learners need to be able to meet their personal goals in advanced water – this might involve paddling in advanced water, but it could also involve paddling in moderate and sheltered water. The course focuses on developing this skill in you as a coach and how you can best work with the environment to achieve individualised learning.

From the British Canoeing website:

“The Coach Awards are designed for people who wish to coach paddlers who want to gain/improve paddlesport skills within a chosen discipline. This may include, for example, technical/tactical skill development, physical/psychological development, or helping people develop the skills so they can paddle safely without the need for a coach. The coach is able to plan, deliver and review progressive sessions safely, effectively and independently. There are 18 options available covering all of our main disciplines and environments. These qualifications are UKCC endorsed at Level 2.”
