Personal (1-3 Star)

1 Star (Generic)

The British Canoeing  One Star is a clear stepping stone to becoming a paddler.  Designed as a basic award, the one star takes place on sheltered water and is the level people would typically reach after an introductory course of six hours quality water time. The award is obtained by taking the assessment in any style of kayak or canoe (eg sit-on-top, slalom C2, polo boat, sea kayak, racing canoe etc.). If the paddler is under 14 the learning programme of Paddle Power might be more appropriate.

2 Star (Generic)

The British Canoeing Two Star is an improvement award that helps paddlers develop fundamental paddlesport skills on flat water. The emphasis is on gaining a breadth of experience, creating the desired movement of the boat and developing an understanding as to how the paddle, boat and water interact. The award is obtained by taking the assessment in both a kayak and a canoe.  Any style of kayak or canoe is permissible eg Sea Kayak, River Kayak, Open Canoe, Racing C1 etc. British Canoeing has produced a Two Star DVD which provides a useful resource for both those who aspire to Two Star and for those who are new to assessing the award.  The DVD is available from the SCA shop. If the paddler is under 14 the learning programme of Paddle Power might be more appropriate.
