The BCU Level 2 Coach is able to plan, deliver and review
progressive sessions safely and effectively. Like the Level 1 Coach, this non-discipline-specific qualification is relevant to coaches who want to coach any paddlesport discipline. You can choose canoe and/or kayak endorsements at assessment.
BCU Level 2 Coaches will work with any paddlers, predominately in their first three years of paddling activity. The BCU Level 2 Coach can work without supervision and is able to offer guidance and
support to the Level 1 Coach.
