Top Tips for Coaches
Short Description

A simple, no nonsense book of ideas collected by the coaches at Plas y Brenin (UK National Mountain Centre)

Over 300 top tips to help you fill your own 'coaches toolbox'.

Introduction - by Loel Collins,

You cannot learn to paddle a canoe or kayak in the UK without being influenced by 'The Brenin' and its canoe department, be it first-hand, on our courses, or indirectly, via one of the thousands of coaches or paddlers we have helped to train over the last 30 years.

Our coaches have been at the forefront of the sport's development and the massive developments in coaching and leadership skills during this period. It makes sense to print a simple, no nonsense book of ideas from the department's coaches. Some of the ideas they will have thought up themselves and some they will have collected as 'coaching shareware' by watching other coaches. The simplicity of the ideas belies the combined experience and breadth of expertise of the contributors that helps to make this the best 4-95 any aspiring coach could spend.

We would like to acknowledge the contributions and influence of the many coaches who have been involved in the development of canoeing and kayaking at Plas y Brenin and have directly or indirectly contributed to this book.
