Coaches run sessions at evenings and weekends, on the water or in the clubhouse gym.
Coaches may also support their paddlers at races in Stone and around the UK.
We are seeking coaches for junior beginners, adult beginners, and for more advanced paddlers.
Coaches will have an opportunity to undertake additional training:
– BCU Foundation Safety and Rescue
– BCU 2 Star
– BCU Level 1 Coach Training and Assessment
All our coaches are DBS checked.
The club continues to attract new young paddlers and since 2013 this has been particularly successful building on the Olympic legacy and the local interest generated by the local athletes successes.
Each year over 100 club members compete at National ranking competitions in 5 seperate ability divisions, and our elite athletes also compete throughout the world.
Stafford and Stone Canoe Club have claimed the National Interclub Championship title in 22 out of 29 Championships, winning the last 13 years consecutively.
In 2011 a new clubhouse in Westbridge Park, Stone was completed. The club now organises eight race days at our home venue and two race days at the National White Water Centre at Holme Pierrepont, Nottingham.
Stafford and Stone Canoe Club is run completely by volunteers!
A current first aid certificate is desirable.
We would expect our coaches to offer 2-3 hours per week of coaching, with an opportunity to travel around the UK to slalom competitions and training camps. We would ask that our coaches can offer a commitment for 12 months.
We welcome applications from students studying for sports and leisure qualifications, and could offer placement opportunities.
Canoe slalom boats and equipment are available for coaches’ use at the club.
