The British Canoeing Awarding Body Stand Up Paddleboard (Sheltered Water) Coach training targets coaches who want to gain more knowledge about coaching Stand Up Paddleboard. This course provides the techniques and strategies for coaching Stand Up Paddleboard techniques to support the Course Training Programme. The course is a mix of theory and practical activity to ensure everyone has time to try things out. The module seeks to support the continuing process of good coaching practice from the Coach Core Module with the syllabus written to focus on coaches who are likely to be supporting paddlers at introductory to intermediate level.
Typically run over 2 days the Discipline Specific Training focuses on HOW to coach the WHAT (discipline specific skills) and WHERE you will be coaching. The training explores how to coach technical and tactical skills. The course will help you to plan and deliver safe, enjoyable, progressive coaching sessions and explore specifics to help you coach typical learners in the Sheltered Water Environment on a SUP. There are no formal Personal Performance Award or Safety Award requirements, however, to get the best from your course you need to feel comfortable on your craft and be able to independently paddle on sheltered water. We recommend holding a Personal Performance Award such as the SUP Sheltered Water Award (or equivalent)
