This weeks session was working with a group of Year 5’s for a day of canoeing for an outdoor adventure. Despite the cold weather the group had a fantastic time canoeing.  I introduced the basic skills and we played lots of games, races and practiced Harry Potter spells to reinforce the learning.

The group were a little apprehensive at the start but as they gained confidence so did their enthusiasm. All enjoyed their time on the water, which I’m sure this was a result of a trust based coaching approach.  I was introduced to this approach at a recent Mountain Training Association (MTA) Coaching conference so its great to see this working in my coaching sessions.
