Hi, I'm Phil I have been a Professional Paddlesports Coach for over 25 years, I teach beginners to advanced in canoe, kayak, sea kayak and SUP
At the moment I'm offering the following online courses -
If you want to gain a few CPD points for your British Canoeing Coach update, you want to learn something new or you just want to relieve
the lockdown boredom - you may want to join me on one of these online courses.
British Canoeing Coach Core.
This is the first step to becoming a canoe, kayak or SUP coach, it's a two day course now available in an online package of four 4 hour sessions. You have to attend all 4 sessions to gain the training.
You then choose which discipline you want, and do the Discipline Specific Training followed by an assessment - these will be face to face courses.
This is an alternative way to access the two day Coach Core Training, it can still be done face to face.
