Many of our members have developed skills informally during the many trips, pool and docks sessions. We offer a taught improvers course for kayaks or open canoes which follow the skills required for the BCU 2 Star Award.

These courses are typically 3 or 4 sessions X 2 hours duration. Our BCU qualified club coaches will guide you through all the skills required to pass each part of the Award.

If successful you will be given a Liverpool Canoe Club certificate for either 2 star kayak or 2 star canoe. If you gain both you will be offered to upgrade to the full BCU Award which although under review currently requires both elements.

Two Star
An improvement award that helps paddlers develop fundamental paddlesport skills on flat water. The emphasis is on gaining a breadth of experience, creating the desired movement of the boat and developing an understanding into how the paddle, boat and water interact.

This award is significantly different to the old 2 star, with a change to develop generic movement skills that can transfer to any discipline and with an assessed journey. Assessors will need to be able to assess the award in a variety of craft.
