THC Coaching Course- Saturday 23rd November

Postby AndrewR » Mon Nov 18, 2019 12:37 pm

Hello NUIGKC,

Its been a while.

What is THC: It stands for The Higgins Coach- its to honour the best coach I've ever known this club to have. Its a loosely organised scheme whereby a number of Alumni would like to get involved to help pass on knowledge and skills informally to newer members of the club.

Who is this for Anybody who currently coaches with the club or has a desire to- who would also consider themselves to be comfortable on the lower at current flows (14-16 gates). We will start on the canal and move to the lower.

Why attend We will evaluate how we paddle and how best to communicate skills to beginner and intermediate paddlers to help them improve- perhaps picking up tips to improve our own personal skills along the way. I loathe to make a formal structure so I can adapt to the group on the day.

Who am I I began kayaking on the canal and lower in my time at NUIG and have been lucky to travel and coach in many different places since. I am also a Canoeing Ireland coach and Secondary School teacher.

When/ Time: This coming Saturday the 23rd. Shed for 9.30am, in gear for 10 and depending on conditions etc continue to roughly 3pm. Dress warm, maybe bring some warm drinks in flasks too.

Cost Free 8-)

Let me know if you are interested on attending below.
