Course Feedback Form

What our clients say...

"Good structure, fun safe, learning. Learnt loads on top of what I already knew and got individual coaching even with a large group. Pre-course information given meant I was fully aware of the structure and what was going to happen, simple, good communication through emails and phone calls. Kit was in excellent condition, ready to be used, so I could have the opportunity to try everything. I learnt new ways to coach and rescue as well as refining techniques I already knew. Any questions were answered and more advice given, praise where needed. Got my Level 1 and FSRT, got great advice and lots of things to take away with me."

Paddle Skills Development

A wild River skills course is more than an experience. It is an investment in your paddling future. Our highly skilled coaches will work with you as an individual to achieve your paddling goals.


Canoe development skills with Wild River

On all our skills courses the coach will:

  • Help you to set  precise, achievable, individualised goals

  • Create a relaxed fun learning environment

  • Use a variety of methods to put across key technical information

  • Create practice tasks that have student lead feedback opportunities to allow practice beyond the coached sessions

  • Support students with decision making for better long term development

We offer a range of skill development courses.  We have a course to help you improve in whatever craft you use and whatever level you are at. If you are not sure which course is for you, please contact us and we will help.

On completion of the course there will be an opportunity to action plan for the future. Your progress will be recorded by the coach. This information will be used when you come back so that we can start where we left off.
