Who are British Canoeing?
BC Personal Performance Awards
We provide a number of BC courses so our members can achieve various BC Personal Performance Awards (PPA). This also supports the BC’s campaign to promote “Long Term Paddler Development” and encourage members to develop their paddlesport skills.
As a BC Affiliated club We are covered by BC Indemnity Insurance, we can seek support from the BC’s when required; plus :-
- We are supported by the BC through our membership of BC’s London Region.
- We can seek support from the different departments within BC, .e.g. the BC Safeguarding team, the Access campaign, Touring Awards, Competitions etc.
BC Access & Environment
We support BC’s “Access” campaign which aims to increase our access rights to rivers within the UK especially in England and Wales where access rights to rivers are often disputed.
As a Club we purchase a number of River licences every year, so Club members have access to rivers on Club Trips.
BC Club Policies and Resources
We adopt many of the BC Policies and Procedures which the BC have developed to ensure all paddlesport activities, within the Club are organised in an efficient, safe and equitable manner. Therefore the structure and running of the Club is heavily influenced by BC.
BC Coach Update Scheme
All our coaches are part of the BC Coach Update Scheme by keeping their BC qualifications up to date, e.g. First Aid courses every 3 years, Coaching update courses every 3 years, and other personal BC paddlesport courses, in order to keep their skills up to date.
