Paddlepower Passport comprises four progressive levels that guide a new paddler from the initial "Start" session through 24 topics which can be grouped into Safety Awareness, Paddling Skills, Varied Experiences, and Supporting Knowledge. This programme encourages each paddler to achieve a recongnised standard.
Adults would acheive a similar standard via the BCU 1 Star course.
A coaching programme of approximately eight hours would be appropriate for most participants. This can be achieved through an extended curriculum course, paddlepower days in the holiday periods or via our monday water sports club.
There is a colourful 6 page Progress Card for the young paddler to record their progress and to encourage them to move to Paddlepower Discover. On completion of the award they should send their Progress Card to us to receive a certificate.
