British Canoeing – Progressive White Water Award
British Canoeing – Personal Performance Awards
The White Water Awards are aimed at paddlers looking to develop their skills for a safe day out on rivers.
These awards can be taken in a variety of craft, including white water kayaks, OC1s and sit on tops, depending on your skill level and the environment.
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 White Water Award endorses your judgment, decision making and expertise and requires a good understanding of paddling on grade 3-4 rivers.
You will leave us being confident planning and undertaking journeys on a variety of white water rivers. Your confidence will be based upon both proficiency in skills and a broad appreciation of surroundings and environmental context.
Your award will be seen as a sound basis for independently building the experience and expertise associated with Advanced White Water Award holders.
