Here is what SCA members said about previous events
"1st class day out - well worth the time.Thanks a really good day"
"It was a nice balance of on and off water sessions. "
"Not too much chalk and talk. Very good to see how the new coaching scheme is evolving."
"The event was great - good to hear the breakdown of the new coaching/award schemes - esp from those who are closely involved with development. I enjoyed meeting the other club coaches there too and hear their answers to how they overcome some of the challenges set by the paddlepower 'tasks'"
"Going over the UKCC qualifications and how it is structured and likely to develop was the first time I fully understood the situation. All of the day was relevant and enjoyable."
This series of events are delivered in partnership with Glenmore Lodge.
