British Canoeing Courses

Personal Performance Awards

The British Canoeing Star Awards are designed for paddlers aged 16 and over.

1 and 2 star awards encourage paddlers to experience the various types of paddlesport available. Paddlers then 'specialise' in particular disciplines from the 3 Star Award onwards. The focus of the 1, 2 and 3 star awards is developing personal skills and gaining independence

It is not essential to progress directly through the awards i.e. paddlers don't need to hold the lower award before progressing

Safety and Rescue Training

British Canoeing Safety Training courses can be completed by anyone wishing to learn the skills that ensure you and your fellow paddlers are safer out on the water. Whether you’re a coach, leader or paddler, staying safe on the water is fundamental to enjoying the sport.

Our safety courses are prerequisites for many of British Canoeing’s leadership and coaching awards.
