Monday and Tuesday were the two days for BCU Level 2 Coaches Rosalind Nicol and Rachel Shuchsmith to start the process towards the Moderate Water Endorsement under the watchful eye of Kim Bull. Monday morning saw a recap of the underpinnings for level 2 coaching, but they were soon out on the water exploring paddler development using the moderate water environment. Tuesday was spent doing a variety of coaching on relatively calm conditions. The morning’s work focused on development of 4* paddlers, with critique and analysis of the paddlers and fitting the coaching within the theme for that session.
The afternoon was with a slightly larger group of club paddlers looking to develop their techniques and skills, Rachel and Rosalind working on aspects of analysis and then fitting coaching to the group. Many thanks to everyone that attended and to Kim for coming up.
Kim Bull is a BCU Level 5 Coach and is in Shetland doing a variety of training for the Club over this next few weeks. Please contact Rachel for details.
