British Canoeing Awarding Body to Launch the NEW Stand Up Paddleboard Coach Award

British Canoeing Awarding Body

The NEW SUP Coach Awards allow you to coach anyone looking to start their journey on SUPs or those looking to continue to develop and progress their SUP skills.

The FOUR NEW Coach Award pathways include:

  • Stand Up Paddleboard Sheltered Water Coach
  • Stand Up Paddleboard Open Water Coach
  • Stand Up Paddleboard White Water Coach
  • Stand Up Paddleboard Race Coach

To become an SUP Coach, you would attend two components of face-to-face training, as well as engage in active, independent learning to develop your coaching skills out on the water. This is concluded by a 1 day assessment.

Existing UKCC Level 2 or Coach Award coaches can bypass the Core Coach training and go straight to the Discipline Specific training.

The NEW SUP Coach Awards are available from the 1st August 2019. Find out more on the British Canoeing website: https://www.britishcanoeing.org.uk/courses/coach-award and view the course documents here https://www.britishcanoeingawarding.org.uk/coach-award-resources/
