Helping other people to enjoy canoeing or kayaking can be extremely rewarding and this section of the website aims to give you the information and guidance you need to get started as a coach in paddlesport.

British Canoeing offers four levels of paddlesport coaching qualifications all of which are endorsed by the United Kingdom Coaching Certificate (UKCC). These four qualifications form the heart of the current coaching scheme

Combined with a range of supplementary modules, the four qualifications provide structure and diversity in supporting coaches’ progression. Developed primarily to meet the needs of paddlesport coaches, the four qualifications offer a variety of development options for both recreational and competition coaches.

Please remember that you need to register for the awards with your own home nation. If that is Canoe Wales, please download a Coach Registration (CR) Form.
