This three hour British Canoeing foundation module introduces coaches to the role of mental skills in paddlesport development and performance. It considers the concepts of mental skills training, imagery training, concentration training, optimal arousal and arousal control strategies in coaching. The ideas are equally applicable to other club activities, e.g. mountain biking or climbing and the delivery will be widened to include them. Trip leaders and non-coaches wanting to develop themselves, and others with interests in the psychological aspects of outdoor activities are also welcome. The learning style will be interactive, with opportunities to discuss themes with other course participants.
The cost for British Canoeing non-members is £28. A British Canoeing attendance certificate will be provided.
