Coach Self-Analysis Tool and Digital Library wins accolade at The Association Awards 2020

The British Canoeing Awarding Body Coach Self-Analysis Tool and Digital Library has won the Best eLearning/Online Education category at the prestigious Association Awards 2020.

The Coach Self Analysis Tool enables an individual to gauge their current level of understanding, skill and knowledge in their discipline.

This tool provides a personal overview of the coaches’ current practice, giving an holistic view as well as a specific breakdown in each of the areas. The analysis then offers considerations of how the coach may want to support their continual learning and development.

These considerations link to a range of resources within the Digital Library, which includes academic papers, videos, podcasts and eLearning.

The Association Awards nomination was the third time the Coach Self-Analysis Tool and Digital Library has been shortlisted this year, following national recognition at the UK Coaching Awards and Learning Technology Awards.

Lee Pooley, Head of Coaching at British Canoeing said:

“I am delighted that we have been recognised by the Association Awards 2020 for the work for the Coach Self-Analysis Tool and Digital Library, a resource that has been designed to support paddlesport coaches.

“We continually strive to seek new and creative ways in making learning and development engaging.”


The awards winners were announced at an online ceremony that recognised the work of member organisations across the UK, from a wide range of sectors and industries.

British Canoeing was also shortlisted for three other awards:

  • Individual Member Association of the Year – British Canoeing
  • Effective Voice of the Year – Go Paddling this Summer campaign
  • Best Digital Transformation – Go Paddling website
