Ideally students need to be experienced in the sport of kayaking. Students will have access to regular water based sessions including surf and river work where they will develop a range of practical skills such as paddle techniques and an understanding of water conditions and safety.
In addition students will have regular land based coaching sessions including theory sessions, understanding nutrition and training and fitness sessions.
There will be opportunities for students to undertake additional relevant qualifications such as first aid. Opportunities exist to take part in local and national competitions and events.
