White Water Kayak Coach Training
(Advanced Water)

How to use your coach skills in an advanced environment.

Coaches who hold the British Canoeing Advanced Water Coach Award have a well developed understanding of the coaching process matched a high level of personal skill and technical understanding.

We believe that advanced paddling is all about getting the fundamentals right. Let us develop your technical understanding of advanced white water paddling so you can better pass on that understanding to future students.

Here at Wild River we have developed a clear understanding of good coaching methodology. We coach techniques that work in a straightforward way. We can give you the advanced understanding along with real applications that will make your students better paddlers. We will look at:

  • Good use of observation and analysis for technical understanding and for student development.
  • Realistic goal setting.
  • Setting clear practice tasks using precise feedback tools.
  • Helping students work through the stages of learning to consolidate skill.

Join us for 2 days of development that will set you off on the journey to become a great coach in advanced conditions

As with many of our coaching courses we will bring some real students for you to work with during the course. This gives you the opportunity to observe the coaching process either of another student or the coach. You will also get the opportunity work with students with support from your coach. Following this can we help you with your action plan for assessment.

We run this course around Fort William so that we can guarantee running it in advanced water. This gives us options including:

  • Etive valley
