The British Canoeing Paddlesport Leader Award is aimed at paddlers taking on formal leadership responsibilities in benign, sheltered water environments and aims to support leaders to run safe, quality and enjoyable trips based on their group's needs and aspirations. This award qualifies you to lead groups on mixed craft.

We have a really great blog on the Paddlesport Leader which can be found here and is a helpful guide to the paddlesport leader.

You must complete a 1 day assessment to gain your Paddlesport Leader award. There is also an optional 2 day Paddlesport Leader Training to help you work towards it and develop your skills. 

For more information on each route, check out the Paddles Up Training resources for Paddlesport Leader HERE or the British Canoeing website resources HERE.
