Local Coaching Panel Meeting & Coaches for HCA

We are hosting a meeting for coaches to hear from the RCO on the lastest news from Canoe England- Location KKC clubhouse on the 5th October at 7.30pm.

What is a Local Coaching Panel?

This is a forum for both paddlesport and aspirant paddlesport coaches to discuss local coaching needs and developments.  A place where clubs/ organisations can find support and where local views can be discussed and as appropriate passed on to the Canoe England Coaching Committee.  The Panels are chaired by the RCO for the region.  Panels are a good place for individual coaches to share ideas and to get support from other coaches for their own development.

The agenda for the meeting will cover an update on the UKCC status, regional structure of the coaching team, update about the regions website (www.yorcie.org.uk/coaching), future events which will benefit club members including a commitment and offer of free training! So we’ve lots to cover.

Coach Update Day; this regional event is being held at Manvers Waterfront Boat Club on October 2nd – Book now www.yorcie.org.uk/courses or speak with Ian Holmes (lco.southyorks@yorcie.org.uk) for more information.

CRB checks; if you are in need for someone to sign to say ‘you are who you say you are’ based upon the approved identity documents (http://www.crb.gov.uk/PDF/CRB11 Guidance Notes.pdf) then bring along your form and documents to these meetings as Canoe England have authorised the regional coaching team to sign these documents.
