Club coaching weekends

 The Seafreedom Kayak portable symposium

Sea Kayak Club.jpg (233580 bytes)

Seafreedom can enable your club to hold itís own sea kayak coaching weekend, wherever you want to have it. Rather like a "portable symposium".

We bring the coaching resource - you bring the people, up to 50. Coaches will be provided at a ratio of at least 1 to every 5 club attendees.

The way it works is this: The club decides the location, picks a weekend, decides number of people and chooses the coaching modules from the list below. We do the rest. And of course, we would be happy to suggest a venue.

Prices around £40/person/day depending on numbers and venue.

Coaching content.

Have a look at the table at the bottom of this page. The list is not exclusive, so if you can't see what you want. drop us an email and let us know  what you would like to include. Normally, we would provide a mixture of full day and half day sessions, but it's your choice.

Development for club coaches

Clubs are welcome to bring their own coaches too, so that they can work along side us.

Alternative disciplines

It's remarkable how experience of other padding disciplines can help you develop your skill. We have open canoes and white water boats and the qualifications to go with them. So try including something a bit different in the program and see how the new skills transfer to sea paddling.

Offered in co-operation with our friends at Sea Kayak Scotland.
