In preparation for your Canoe Leader Assessment, you'll cover all the paddling, leadership and safety skills (both solo and as part of a tandem crew) necessary during this five day programme. In fact, we've designed it to exceed the training requirements for this award, so you get even more - including a personalised action plan that's designed to help you reach your goal and achieve leader level. You'll also cover The White-water Safety and Rescue (WWsR) course on this programme.

The Objectives

The aim is that, by the end of this course, you'll show that you've achieved the personal skill level required to lead a group of up to four solo canoe paddlers or three tandem canoe crews, on Moderate White Water and Moderate Inland Water.


* Please note: Itinerary is subject to weather and availability.

What to Expect

We'll make the best use of the weather and water levels to ensure that we maximise conditions. You'll spend two days on Grade 2 white-water, and one day on moderate open water. During the two remaining days, you'll cover the WWSR syllabus.

Experience Required

Three Star skills with some experience of paddling both solo and tandem on white water. The course will be an active one so come prepared for five full days of paddling, swimming and learning.

We want to help you focus on achieving your goals, so comfortable accommodation (with WIFI included) and good food are part of the deal - you don't need to think about sorting this out for yourself. Support is on hand from our friendly, and exceptionally well qualified, staff to help develop your understanding and personal skills. They also help you to formulate an appropriate action plan for your further development. What's more, you'll have access to our extensive range of paddling equipment and clothing to use whilst honing your chosen skills. This gives you the perfect opportunity to test out that new piece of kit you've had your eye on. You just bring yourself, your 'can do' attitude, and determination to achieve excellence.
