Coaching Awards

UKCC British Canoeing Level 1 Coach

For many coaches the  UKCC BC Level 1 Certificate in Coaching Paddlesport is the first step on the coaching pathway. The qualification introduces the fundamentals of safe, ethical and effective coaching.  Candidates are trained to coach basic skills to paddlers in any type of paddlesport craft in a sheltered, flat-water environment.  A range of coaching tips, games and activities are built into the course, along with time spent developing technical and tactical understanding of these skills. The Level 1 Coach can plan, deliver and review short coaching sessions, normally with the support of a more qualified coach. They can work with paddlers at any stage of development, but will receive specific training to coach paddlers in their first year of activity, and to run taster sessions.
