Training for 1 star will be going on during normal sessions and assessments will be held throughout the year as and when coaches think paddlers are ready for this, it is not a difficult award to get but just needs a little application.
2 Star Training
We now have a draft program for 2 star training as well as the normal Saturday sessions we have arranged block training being arranged by Christina, they are:
10th June, 17th June, 24th June, 1st July, 8th July and 22nd July. These dates need to be pre booked and paid for in advance. Costs will be £30.
Also we will be doing an intensive weekend course for those who cannot make this and it is planned for 22nd/23rd July this is subject to change, and again will cost £30.
There are plans for a series of Thursday night training sessions in a similar vein to the Saturday block course, these are being run by Kirst dates are : 6th May, 13th May, 3rd June, 10th June, 17th June and 24th June, again these sessions will cost £30.
We will then hold an assessment day on 29th July.
3 Star Training
We will be organising 3 star flat water skills training in the coming months, the basic skills are the same across all the disciplines and is the point where most paddlers have problems on assessment as they are usually competent in their chosen environment. We will be publishing the dates in the near future
Please book these in advance when you attend a session.
