Freestyle Award Provider

What the Role Entails

As a provider of the Freestyle Award you will develop a paddler’s freestyle skills. You will expand their range of moves and will help them to begin to link them together effectively whilst using the features of the white water to their advantage.

The Freestyle Award is paddler-focused.

At Paddles Up Training we want you to help paddlers take charge of their learning by:

  • Supporting your paddlers to become independent.
  • Helping your paddlers to be clear ‘what’s next’ for them.

What does the development process look like?

As long as you meet the minimum requirements you can become a Provider at any time, by completing the following steps:

This fun eLearning guides you by subject, through the design of the awards, why we made those choices and will give you some useful hints and tips.

Development Phase

You do what you need, this might involve:

  • Co-delivery of Freestyle Awards with other Providers.
  • Reflecting on your own development.
  • Discussing with your Mentor.

Once you feel ready, when you have the confidence to run the Freestyle Award yourself, you will need a Final Recommendation. This must be from a current Freestyle Award Provider.

Final Recommendation

You will work with an existing Provider of the Freestyle Canoe Award. When you are both happy you fully understand the Freestyle Award and the requirements of being a Provider, they will then send us their Final Recommendation. The role will then be added to your British Canoeing record.

You can find out more in the Final Recommendation Guidance Document.
