BC Canoe Leader Assessment

BCU 4 Star Canoe White Water Leader Assessment picture

Fluid skills deliver this course all over the UK and Europe; the assessment will be over two days focusing on personal skills, leadership styles and structures on grade 2 white water and moderate open water.

The assessment course will also cover aspects of white water rescue and safety and first aid.

There will be a different assessor each day and assessed in a non-interventional way.

Successful assessment after training at this level indicates that the paddlers can consider themselves white water leaders on Grade 2 white water and up to force 4 in an open water environment. 

As they can now lead in a moderate water environment, they can do this in a competent manner and have the knowledge and ability to make decisions for the group for a safe decent of the river or trip on open water.

The Award is a leadership award not a coaching award. It is not suitable for introducing beginners to the sport.

The white water canoe coach would be the suitable award for this. The Canoe leader award is a Pre requisite for the white water canoe coach training.

A full detailed action plan during the course will assist in your personal development after your course to help you continue your development from assessment.
