Enjoy the Level 1 training and assessment in a relaxed and supportive atmosphere. We only use the best coaches available who will improve your coaching and personal paddling as you progress to Level 1 coach.  Join us at the best venues available and benefit from using some of the highest quality equipment used by any provider.


The Level 2 coach training is the key to your future coaching development.  Come and get the best technical input, delivered in the most straight forward way. Let us de-mystify the coaching process for you and enable you to develop as a brilliant coach. At the end of the course you will understand exactly what steps you need to take in your journey to Level 2 coach.


We believe that assessments should not be stressful and will do everything in our power to make them relaxed experiences. On our assessment we will ask you to coach some students while observing unobtrusively.  You will receive constructive feedback from our highly experienced team as we take you through the assessment process.
