- Physical Preparation for Paddlesports
This workshop will examine some of the key concepts around physical preparation and its application to paddlesport. This workshop is aimed at those looking to gain further understanding around strength and conditioning and the impact this can have on both athletes and coaches alike.
- What are my deployment responsibilities and good practice guidelines?
This workshop will discuss the deployment responsibilities and good practice guidelines for organisations that are delivering paddlesport activity, utilising, where possible, real world examples and speakers, alongside British Canoeing learning, support and guidance. We will also discuss the interrelationship between differing types of activity within the club activity framework and how this can be applied.
- Crossing Lines
This workshop is aimed at those who work regularly with children. The workshop will explore conduct, boundaries and safe practice, to enable you to feel confident that you are acting within safeguarding guidelines at all times, in the interest of keeping the children you coach, yourself and your colleagues safe.
- Coaching for all: Inclusion in coaching
This workshop will take a look at why inclusion is an important consideration in coaching and how it can impact on and benefit their practice; what resources are available to coaches to help improve their understanding of this topic; and what coaches can take away to implement and consider in their practice.
