British Canoeing Paddle Awards
March 21, 2019
We are happy to announce that we are providers of the newly launched Personal Performance Awards!
We will be running Paddle Start, Paddle Discover and Paddle Explore which have been designed for paddlers wanting to gain recognition of their learning and development, in the craft and environment they choose.
The Start Award is exactly what it says on the tin, it’s a place to start your paddling journey. If you’re brand new to the sport and really want to learn the basics to get started, then this is the award for you. You’ll cover everything from getting in and out of the boat, what you need to wear and paddling forward.
We will be running half day paddle tasters in kayaks, canoes and SUPs, where you will get recognition in the form of an E certificate after completion. Please see below for dates.
The Discover Award allows you to develop your decision making and practical skills for a fun and safe time on the water, as you become a more skilled and independent paddler. Through this award you will learn how to choose and effectively use equipment, whilst developing an understanding of the factors which affect your paddling. You don’t need any previous experience to take your Discover Award, just the desire for fun and learning!
We will be running full day paddle discover awards in kayaks, canoes and SUPs, where you will get recognition in the form of an E certificate after completion.
