A selection of resources to support your leadership decision making when using weirs.
The presentation and supporting documents provide valuable knowledge for any leader wishing to include the safe, dynamic appraisal and shooting of weirs in their trip planning. The Paddlesport Touring Leader Award specifically includes the use of weirs within a British Canoeing remit but these resources can be used by anyone to support the use of weirs.
British Canoeing will arrange opportunities throughout the year for Coaches and Leaders to take part in interactive webinars based on this presentation.
