British Canoeing

Canoe Performance Award

The NEW Personal Performance Awards are designed for paddlers wanting to gain recognition of their learning and development, in the craft and environment they choose.

These awards allow paddlers to improve their skills, working towards the award of their choice, developing their decision making and fundamental skills. There are no dual discipline awards and all of the awards are direct entry, giving the paddler choice.

The NEW Personal Performance Awards could be used to refresh your skills or development in other areas.

From January 2019, the Personal Performance Awards will no longer be directly linked to the Coaching or Leadership awards. 

The changes do not affect current Star Award holders. Any Star Awards taken with British Canoeing will remain recognised.
