If you’ve completed all the pre-requisites, checked in and you’re feeling ready for assessment, then this is the course for you.
We’ll catch up on-line in the run up to the assessment, to chat through your assessment discussion task, run through potential venues and decide how to structure the assessment to work for you.
On the assessment day you’ll coach a group of 2-4 canoeists, either for or on moderate open water in winds up to force 4. You’ll coach for at least 90 minutes at your choice of venue. If it doesn’t look like we’ll find moderate conditions we’ll have to cancel the assessment. We’ll also take a look at rescues, personal paddling skills and discuss your coaching session together.
You can bring your own students. You’ll know them and be able to move quickly to coaching them. Or we can supply unknown students, in which case you’ll need to spend some time getting to know them and working out what they want and need.
