This week I was out canoeing for Arthog Outreach with a group of Year 5’s for an outdoor adventure. This was a refreshing change from previous weeks where I delivering REC first aid courses. To find out more about these courses take a look at the links below:
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.
