The Level 2 UKCC Certificate in Paddlesport Coaching award is relevant to potential coaches from all paddlesport disciplines including coaches who might work with competitive and non-competitive paddlers. The award develops the foundation coaching skills taught at level 1 that will underpin their future coaching behaviours and practice. The training will aim to ensure coaches develop skills that will benefit any paddler irrespective of what type of boat they are paddling.
The Level 2 coach is able to work alone, delivering sessions safely and effectively. Like the Level 1, this non-discipline specific award is relevant to coaches who wish to coach any paddlesport discipline. The Level 2 coach is able to offer guidance and support to the Level 1 Assistant Coach.
