Over the last week I have been preparing myself for my Level 2 kayak and canoe coach assessment. I have been coaching canoeing with different outdoor companies and travelling round Scotland working as a volunteer assistant coach. During these sessions I worked with a range of clients, mainly children, some of whom are relaxed and want to be there and others who don’t and just mess around. This has been frustrating but I have picked up a lot of ideas about how to run sessions and work with a variety of clients. I think I am well along the road to my assessment but I will see when I get there.
