Tonight at the pool we started a new session for beginners. It was so much fun to coach the first session with four new folk. After all the safety and capsize drill, a lot of what we focussed on was feel for how to move the boat about and how to move yourself around the boat to develop awareness of balance. Of course that meant another coach and I had to demonstrate first!
We should do loads more of this sort of thing on a regular basis, it was great fun.
I hope by the end of the session the participants had enjoyed it as much as I did and went away with a sense of achievement.
They did great!
