BC Courses and Coaching in the North East

I specialise in making it easy for you to learn and  gain your BC awards – whether it’s a training course or an assessment.

In my training courses I not only give you the skills and tactics you need, you will also learn to think and make decisions like the very best paddlers do.

I understand that the assessment process can be challenging, so I create an environment which allows you to perform at your very best making it easy for you to show us what you can do.
