The Discipline Specific Training focuses on the ‘how’ to coach and ‘where’ to coach the technical and tactical discipline specific skills.
The course will help you plan and deliver quality, safe, enjoyable, progressive coaching sessions in a moderate river environment, and you’ll explore specifics to help you coach some typical athletes/learners relevant to you/your discipline.
Is this course for me?
This two-day course provides the discipline specific training required to progress to the British Canoeing white water kayak Coach Assessment.
You will need good knowledge of the discipline(s) you wish to coach as this training provides the content of WHAT you will be coaching. Prior to training, craft-based coaches should ensure that their personal skills (and leadership skills) are well practiced in a moderate river environment. This will allow you to focus on developing your ‘coaching’, rather than your ‘paddling’. Please contact the head of paddlesports if you have any further questions.
To attend the training, you will be required to have full Home Nation Association Membership
and have completed you BC Core Coach Training

All essential equipment is available from our extensive stores. We advise you not to rush out and buy kit for the course, but use it as a chance to find out what would best suit your needs. If you do have any of your own equipment do bring it along.
Our staff will be required to vet for suitability equipment such as buoyancy aids and helmets.
You should bring the following personal equipment with you:
Personal paddling equipment and any paddling games / props
Notebook and pen.
Extra thermal tops, warm outdoor wear (fleece is ideal), as there will be bank based discussions
Towel and toiletries,
small first aid kit/ personal medication,
vacuum flask, water bottle,
Our equipment stores are by far the best around with a stock of over 100 boards/ boats from across the range of models, so there are plenty to choose from! If you’re thinking of buying a boat or board come along and ‘try before you buy’ and also get unbiased expert advice from our staff on the most suitable equipment for you.
Again, participants are encouraged to bring any of their own personal equipment so they get the opportunity to be coached using the equipment they are most familiar with.
