BCU training has been hard to come by in the Midwest. We ran a Coach 1 at the Gales in Canada last year with Nick Cunliffe (BCU L5 Coach) and are pleased to announce that Nick Cunliffe will be attending both the WMCKA Memorial Day Symposium and running a BCU Coach 1 prior to the West Michigan Symposium. We are really excited to begin offering this program as part of an annual program to bring the current standard of coaching one step higher in the Great Lakes.
The Coach 1 Course information and signup details can be found on the BCU Coach 1 Page.
The Coach Level one is a great course that offers a multi-disciplinary approach to paddlesports that will service the midwest very well, it also provides a great starting point for all coaches whether they are interested in kayaking stand-up paddling, canoeing or all three. If there is one coaching program everyone should have, this would be it.
The course has two pre-reqs (2* award and FSRT) and the requisite amount of British paperwork, so please be sure to read the course outline carefully and call or email me with any questions.
