British Canoeing – Progressive Canoe Award
British Canoeing – Personal Performance Awards
The Canoe Awards are for paddlers looking to develop and progress their Canoeing skills or looking for recognition of their existing skills.
Awards can take place in a variety of venues enabling progression at your own pace and confidence level, whilst developing both your understanding and skills in canoeing.
There are no prerequisites or age restrictions so start your next award today!
The new Personal Performance Awards are designed for paddlers wanting to gain recognition of their learning and development, in the craft and environment they choose. These awards allow paddlers to improve their skills, working towards the award of their choice, developing their decision making and fundamental skills.
There are no dual discipline awards and all of the awards are direct entry, giving the paddler choice.
Our Progressive Canoe Award endorses your ability to apply appropriate decision-making skills for a safe day out canoeing on grade 2(3) rivers and large areas of open water.
On open inland water, you might be up to 500m from shore and in winds up to and including force 4. If travelling on the sea, you would be using sheltered areas, small bays and harbours with the minimal possibility of being blown offshore. When on the sea, you will be happy operating in force 3 winds (force 2 if the wind direction is offshore).
This award will be seen as a sound basis for independently building the experience and expertise associated with Advanced Canoe Award holders.
