Kayak Coach Training
Members of the Pentland Canoe Club (Simon Copsey; Andy Ford and David Mowat) completed a Level 2 Coach (Kayak) training course last weekend. This was the culmination of a session of hard work during which they had to obtain various pre-requisites for the course including a Canoeing Safety Test, First Aid and 3 Star Certificates. During the training course they were coached in the fundamentals of coaching, safety, journeying and personal skills. Following this course there will be a consolidation of the skills learnt before attending an assessment in the near future. The course was run by local coaches Ken Nicol and Bob Silverwood who are both Level 5 Coaches (Sea) - the highest coach award achievable in the UK.
