Canoeing and Kayaking Training Opportunity

11 week course starting Monday 9th April 2018.

We have teamed up with Eagle Canoe Club in Norwich for a second year to run an 11 week course that will teach you how to run Canoeing or Kayaking in your group.

The course includes an assessment which if you pass would then mean you are recommended for a permit to your District Commissioner to run the activity in your unit.

 

Details of course

The course is an 11 week series on Monday nights from 6:30 pm to 8:30pm from Monday 9th April to Monday 18th June 2018. It will cover getting paddlers up to a 3 star standard as well as covering the coaching processes elements.

The cost is £40 per person and will include use of Eagle Canoe Club equipment and temporary membership of Eagle Canoe Club and the ability to attend club activities and local trips to enable participants to get up to a 3 star standard.

The course includes a Scout assessment for a leadership permit.

 

Requirements

To take part in the course, you must be the following:

  • A full adult member (while we can train those members ‘provisional’, they cannot gain a permit until their role is full)
  • Around a 2 star standard in canoeing or kayaking
  • Have a first aid certificate

 

How to register

If you are interested in doing the course, please e-mail Darren, Norfolk MAPS on d.glanville@norfolkscouts.org.uk with how many are interested and your location.
