New for 2020 – Performance Coach

The NEW Performance Coach provides well practiced coaches the opportunity to further develop and refine their coaching practices and to enhance their ability to use sophisticated coaching practices to improve the performance and long-term development of the paddlers they coach. 

The Performance Coach Award is an ideal programme for intrinsically driven, experienced coaches, who want to get better at coaching the paddlers they work with, and for those who seek recognition that their delivery meets enhanced levels of sophistication.

The learning journey is fluid and personalised to every coach who undertakes the programme. The key components of the award are the same but as an experienced coach, you will steer the direction and focus of your learning, in areas that are most relevant to you.

The Performance Coach Award will be available in 21 pathways, across all of our main disciplines and environments. There is no workbook or portfolio to complete

The new qualification will be available from 29th June 2020
