Shrewsbury School

Kayak Club: Two pupils gain qualification to coach

Friday 20 January 2012

Congratulations to Andrew Spicer and Alastair Wager for successful completion of their UK Coaching Certificate Training Level 1, completed for both Canoe and Kayak. The two Kayak Club members are committed to paddlesports and are the first two students in the school to accrue sufficient quantity, quality and breadth of experience to be able to go on to instruct in both vessels. 

The training happened over the Christmas break on the rivers of Shropshire during a particularly cold spell.  The students undertook training in coaching processes, leadership, target setting, hazard awareness etc., and are now allowed to officially coach fellow students in paddlesports in both the pool and on the rivers!

Well done to both for braving the icy cold water.
