Event description

Description

The Club is looking to provide opportunities for members to gain recognition for their paddling skills and experience through the Paddle Australia Qualification Scheme.

We currently have some qualified and active Paddle Australia assessors within the Club and they are offering a paddling activity for any members interested in achieving a Paddle Australia award. Although it is not necessary to have your skills and experience acknowledged by a certificate, some members might be interested in this level of recognition.

To test this concept, we will provide an assessment opportunity for Club members to gain their Flatwater Skills certificate. Holders of this award have demonstrated the ability to plan and undertake a personal day paddle in a flatwater environment (eg: lakes, dams, slow moving rivers).

It is likely that members that have some paddling experience over the last few years would be close to meeting the criteria to achieve this award.

The criteria are:

i. Demonstrate suitable paddling skills; including strokes, rescues, launch & land, knowledge of clothing & basic paddling equipment. Some knowledge to plan and navigate a route, basic weather interpretation to plan a paddle and how to prepare a trip plan.

ii. Log (or summary) of experience showing five paddle outings in last 3 years.

iii. Short trip planning outline plan for a 3 hour paddle with friends in a location of your choice.

Club members interested in the assessment process are invited to attend and participate in a fun day’s paddling.

This will be a great opportunity to demonstrate your paddling skills, earn an award and receive some guidance and feedback from experienced Club members. Limited places please book asap, registration will close when all places are allocated or 19th January.

Time / Date: 9am – 4.30pm, Sunday 20 January 2019
