Pathway opportunities for Slalom Coaches 

British Canoeing Awarding Body is pleased to announce that it has developed an alternative pathway for Slalom Coaches, and is now offering two regulated qualifications:

  • Slalom Coach (Grade 1/2) 
  • Slalom Coach (Grade 2/3)

During a review of the existing pathway for Slalom Coaches it was evident that many clubs do not operate within the environmental definitions of moderate water (Grade 2/3) and the need to provide opportunities for those coaching slalom within clubs to gain a regulated qualification.

‘The new pathways better reflect the environments that Slalom coaches operate within, enabling those that have already attended a training course to choose the environment that they are assessed in, as well as providing choice to those at the start of their coaching journey

Lee Pooley Director of Coaching & Qualifications.
