International Coach Programme 2020


The England Talent Sprint Programme is pleased to announce ‘The International Coach Programme’, a new addition to programme provision for 2020.

This programme is a key part of the England Talent Canoe Sprint Talent Plan and will support the development of a national talent system based more strongly in clubs, under pinning and driving our Athlete, Coach and Club development programmes.

The International Coach Programme provides a structured and supported learning opportunity for club coaches to experience Canoe Sprint competition at an international level working alongside Great Britain Team coaches at the Olympic Hopes regatta durint the 2020 Canoe Sprint international season. Coaches will be supported in this process by the Talent Coach Developer who will hwlp to structure and facilitate event attendance in a manner designed to support the learning needs of the individual club coach.

It is intended that exposure to the international racing standards will enable the club coach to better understand and appreciate what is required to race at this level, in order to help them best support and develop their own athletes within their club.
