Coaches

All of our coaches are volunteers and do it for the love of the sport and see it as a way of giving something back into the community.  Most have either come through the original Chichester Youth Wing themselves or have started a life paddling because of their own children.  

We all hold the required qualifications within the British Canoe Union (BCU).

Our aim is to help the young paddlers to progress through the BCU awards as far as we can within the enrionment.  Below are the latest documents for the BCU 1 & 2 star awards to give an idea of what is expected.  If you have any questions then please use the contact page or call in and see us.
