Is It For Me?

This course is aimed at any coach or paddler, and can be used as a required module for the Performance Coach Award or as CPD.

Course Aims

This 6 hour course will introduce and expand on the psychological aspects of coaching paddlesport. This will help both the individual as a coach and also as a performer and give a valuable insight into this key aspect of paddlesport. It will be delivered in an understandable and practical way which should shed some light on this large subject area, and hopefully inspire the learner to want to learn more.

The first part of the course will briefly recap on the subject areas covered in the foundation module; arousal, concentration and imagery. You do not need to attend the foundation module prior to this course, however if interested in the above subject areas you may wish to attend the foundation module at some stage. Having looked at these three areas briefly we will add to this by looking at Self Talk and Pre-Performance Routines in our coaching and paddling. The other two major subject areas we will look at as part of the course are Individual Analysis and Motivation. The above topics will be delivered in a contextual way with practical examples and exercises throughout, some of these may take place in boats on our canoe pond. This should give you plenty of knowledge to help the development of the psychological areas of your coaching.

Please bring your BC log book (if you have one). Note: It is not essential to be a member of either the SCA or BC to undertake training.  However, we recommend that all students join before attending:  Tel: BC on 0845 370 9500; or Tel: SCA on 0131 317 7314.
