student-centred sea kayak coaching workshops explores the
following areas:

  • Students – at the centre of the coaching experience
  • Observation skills – a vital skill for coaches & students
  • Focusing attention – tuning in to changes that make a difference
  • Organising practice – session structure for quick fixes &
    long-term learning
  • Exchanging feedback – on the same page, mutual understanding, 2-way process
  • Reviewing skills – goal-setting, sharing, planning, reflecting

This workshop will take place in a simple sea kayak environment –
in sea kayaks on the sea, accessible to all paddlers at BC 3 Star
standard or beyond.

If you’re a sea kayak coach from other national training schemes, or if you want to explore British Canoeing coaching principles without committing to the entire scheme, this student-centred sea kayak coaching workshop is an excellent opportunity to enhance your coaching skills.
