The three hour British Canoeing Awarding Body ‘Performance Planning for Paddlesports Coaches’ Foundation Module seeks to develop a vocabulary in coaches to understand how to articulate a three-phase breakdown of the performers’ needs.

These are:

    1. The accurate breakdown of the type of paddling in focus
    2. Complete a performance profile of a paddler
    3. Construct a development plan to move the paddler accurately forwards in the desired context
