A huge range of Paddlesport courses is offered by the British Canoeing Awarding Body to cater for all interests.

For those starting out in Paddlesport, the club
can offer:

  • Paddle Start Award
  • Paddle Discover Award
  • Paddle Explore Award
  • Paddle Safer Award

The club will also support members wishing to undertake safety courses such as:

  • Paddlesport Safety and Rescue Course
  • White Water Safety and Rescue Course
  • Coastal Navigation and Tidal Planning
  • First Aid
Where these are a pre-requisite for a club volunteer wishing to become a qualified leader or coach, the course can be subsidised by the Outdoor Partnership. The club will also organise training and assessment for Personal Performance Awards in white water kayaking, sea kayaking and canoeing depending on interest. Club affiliation to the Outdoor Partnership means that members who would like to lead or coach at club sessions can undertake training and assessment at a highly subsidised rate of £20 per day.

Courses include:

  • Paddlesport Instructor
  • Paddlesport Touring Leader award
  • Discipline specific leader awards
  • Discipline specific coaching awards

If you would like to know more about these and other BCAB awards, please see Brian (coaching@llanrwstcanoeclub.org.uk) or any member of the committee.
