BCU/UKCC Level 1 Coach
This is the BCU’s first coaching award for people wishing to become a paddlesports coach and on successful completion students will be able to operate under supervision in any BCU recognised craft e.g. canoe, kayak, bell boat, race boats, sea kayaks etc.
This is a four day course which involves both theory and practical and can be completed on four consecutive days, two weekends or even four separate days.
The level one can be awarded as either a boat based award allowing the coach to train from the water or a bank based award for those unable to paddle for whatever reason but who still want to be able to coach paddlesports.
Boat based students should have the 2 star award and FSRT awards before attending this course and must register with the BCU.
Bank based students do are not required to hold a 2 star award but must however have attended a bank based FSRT as well as registering with the BCU.
If any of these qualifications are not already held Diverse Coaching can train and assess you to the required level, please contact us for further information via the contacts page.
Following the course Diverse Coaching will do all of the paperwork and a personalised action plan will be designed to continue development after the course has finished.
