British Canoeing Performance (Star) Awards

The new Star Award scheme provides the support and encouragement to paddlers to get out and go paddling. The initial awards are generic, encouraging paddlers to experience the various disciplines of paddlesport available such as canoeing and kayaking, with paddlers 'specialising' at the Three Star Award in one or more disciplines.

The emphasis of these initial awards is to develop personal skills in a range of craft before progressing in a specific discipline in one or more craft. The Star Award Scheme best suits paddlers aged 16 and over.

I currently provide the following British Canoeing personal skills courses and assessments:

  • 1 Star training and assessment
  • 2 Star training and assessment
  • 3 Star WW Kayak training and assessment
  • 3 Star Canoe training and assessment
  • 3 Star Touring (Kayak) training and assessment
