Paddlesport Leader Award

The NEW (from April 2017) Paddlesport Leader is  aimed at paddlers taking on formal leadership responsibilities in benign, sheltered water environments and aims to support Leaders to run safe, quality, enjoyable trips based on their group’s needs and aspirations. Participants can be assessed without training, however we are offering a one day training course before the one day assessment. Longer training courses can be arranged, contact us to find out more.
