British Canoeing Launch Coach Award

The Coach Awards are designed for people whose core function is to coach paddlers who want to gain/improve paddlesport skills within the discipline chosen. This will include coaching beginners new to the sport, or paddlers looking to develop their skills in the given discipline/environment. 

The Coach Award will supersede the current Level 2, Moderate/Advanced Water Endorsements (MWE/AWE) and Discipline Support Modules. 

Benefits of the Coach Award include:

  • Direct entry options to training available – a British Canoeing membership is the only prerequisite of the Core Coach Training
  • Specific pathways across all disciplines
  • Supportive eLearning resources to aid learning

Available from January 2018 British Canoeing will look to roll out the award by completing the following milestones over the coming months:

  • September 2017: British Canoeing will be training the trainers
  • October - December 2017: Home Nations will be training the provider workforce
  • January 2018: Training and assessment courses will be available throughout the UK

Further updates, including how to become involved in the award, will be promoted via the British Canoeing website and the 'Catch up with Coaching' newsletter.
