The all new Personal Performance Awards from British Canoeing suit Getafix down to the ground... some proper skill progressions replace the previous 2-day 'quick qual' of star awards, and even better, leadership is separated out so advanced personal skills can be pursued for their own sake. This comprehensive scheme is designed to support and improve your paddling, whichever level you're at and we are perfectly placed to take you through the levels. 

Each award is designed to build on your skills and help progress you to greatness. The awards are direct entry and are ideal if you are looking to improve your personal paddling and for those hoping to further equip themselves for other British Canoeing pathways.

Award level: learn how to handle your chosen craft in a week. 

Progressive Award: for the intermediate canoeist/kayaker to start to really refine your paddling. Introduction to White Water in some North Wales's finest rivers.

Advanced Award: Take it to the next level! Our coaches are top-qualified, top-quality and will take you as far as you can go 

 

This new scheme goes live January 2019 so treat yourself to a 5 days of top coaching. Bunkhouse accommodation included in the price, as well as all the paddling kit you need and your boat/SUP. We also cover your river fees. All you have to pay for is your cert fee to BC if you want the certificate.
