As we move into the summer and the MRC/SRC bursary for the British Canoeing Race coach award continues, it would be helpful to know how many clubs would still like to put coaches forward for the award and the bursary.
We have had 60+ coaches complete the Race discipline specific course so far, and are now starting to allocate funding for the assessment to finish the qualification. As the funding is from a finite amount, we need to spend it in the most effective and beneficial way for the clubs and sport.
If your club is wanting to put coaches through the award – or if it has already done so and is now wanting to arrange an assessment – then let us know so we can plan to help out accordingly, as it is on a first come, first served basis.
A reminder – the original information on the bursary and the course can be found here. As the BC course finder isn’t working fully at the moment, we also have a list (not exhaustive) of course providers and assessors that we can put you in contact with.
Finally, a big congratulations to the clubs and coaches who have undertaken the course, and to those that’ll be passing this year – well done!
