Launched in January 2021, the NEW Paddlesport Touring Leader supports you to lead fun, safe and enjoyable mixed craft journeys, on moderate inland water. This new award is already proving popular and we hear from Grant, Emily and Piotr.
We are pleased to share our NEW Introduction to Fitness eLearning, new Raft Guide videos and your opportunity to become a Delivery Partner. This edition also includes your opportunity to provide feedback for the Safety review, and we are interested in finding out how leaving the EU may affect anyone wishing to paddle overseas.
As part of the British Canoeing strategic plan to review qualifications and awards, throughout 2021 we will be carrying out a full review of our current offering on safety awards, as well as considering appropriate methods to raise and improve safety awareness and education.
British Canoeing Raft Guide qualifications are recognised and used throughout the UK and Internationally.
Supporting the athlete development framework, our What It Takes To Progress (WITTP) model, BCAB have been working with the English Institute of Sport to provide a series of videos covering Stage 1 Fundamental Movement Skills targeted at paddlers.
Aimed at paddlers, parents, instructors, coaches and leaders, fitness is a key consideration for anyone involved in paddlesport. This activity introduces the ‘who’, ‘why’ and ‘how’ of fitness in paddlesport and covers an introduction to a range of topics.
New for 2021, the NEW Paddlesport Touring Leader is ideal for clubs, centres and organisations who go on mixed craft journeys on slow moving water, slow moving rivers and open inland waters.
In this months newsletter, we are pleased to share that the NEW Delivery Partnership is now live, providing an opportunity for all instructors, coaches and leaders to promote their experience and services. This edition also includes a reminder about keeping up to date, your opportunity to nominate your UK Coaching Hero as well as an update to our Coaching Podcast.
