It is vital coaches take a genuine interest in their participants. Having good people skills is an intrinsic part of being an effective coach and that means acquiring a deep insight into people’s lives inside and outside of sport. Ultimately, the more you understand and connect with your participants, by observing, noticing and communicating, the more you will be able to support them and help them flourish.
British Canoeing is going on the road during the Autumn to update and support members on the developments within Coaching and Leadership, specifically focusing on the Personal Performance Awards.
British Canoeing are working with the University of Central Lancashire, British Cycling and Mountain Training on a research study to try to better understand how you prefer to learn and develop your leadership, coaching and instructing skills, where your knowledge and practice is sourced and how you prefer to receive this information.
British Canoeing is committed to delivering world leading qualifications and awards, ensuring high standards of experience and knowledge in all the disciplines represented. SUP White Water and Surf are new areas for the organisation and as such, have a limited representation of Providers in these areas. To ensure consistency and standards of delivery, we are running both SUP WW and Surf orientations for aspirant Providers to deliver the NEW SUP Personal Performance Awards from 2nd January 2019.
