British Canoeing Awarding Body announces the NEW Stand Up Paddleboard White Water Leader Course

Quality training from the world's largest paddling course provider

The Stand Up Paddleboard White Water Leader Course is appropriate for people who want to lead others on journeys on grade 2(3) white water rivers. Throughout this course you will be assessed on your personal paddling skills, rescue skills, incident management and more.

Over the past two years we have seen a growth in this specific area of Stand Up Paddleboarding, with guided trips within a white water environment and we are delighted to be able to offer this course in 2024. The content is aligned with our other awards within the leadership suite as well as covering specifics of briefings, equipment and safety and rescue. It was a privilege that I was able to work alongside the highly experienced and knowledgeable individuals on the SUP White Water Working Group, to create a high quality programme. In early 2024 National Trainers and Providers will be attending a specific training event to ensure the standardisation of delivery and assessment’

– Lee Pooley Director of Coaching & Qualifications.

The SUP White Water Leader Assessment can be run over 1-2 days.The SUP White Water Leader will be working from their suitable chosen white water SUP and will be assessed leading a group of 3 to 6 paddlers.

The Stand Up Paddleboard White Water Leader course will be available from 4th March 2024.

Further updates will be promoted via the British Canoeing Awarding Body website and the ‘Catch up with Coaching’ newsletter.
