Coaches and leaders, we salute you. Without your skill, passion and commitment, paddlesports in the UK simply would not be enjoyed by as many people – whether they’re happy weekend paddlers or the dedicated athletes proudly taking their positions on the winners’ pantheons at the Olympics and World Championships.
Just as you are dedicated to the needs of paddlers, we are dedicated to supporting you in every aspect of your coaching. Here you can learn more about the many ways British Canoeing supports you as coach – from coaching qualifications, to resources, to financial support.
