As you may be aware British Rowing has been working with the CPGA and CRA to develop a Level 1 Coxes Certificate. This certificate is designed to provide some basic training for club coxes. The course is not a formal qualification, but provides a framework for clubs or groups of clubs to develop the skills of their coxes. Modules covered within the certificate include:
– Steering and Navigation
– Basic Technique
We would like to start delivering some initial courses to clubs across the region from January 2010. In order to do this we need to identify some people with the necessary experience who are willing to run courses within their club, or for groups of clubs in their local area. We are looking for people who;
(a) have experience of coxing in coastal environments
(b) feel confident to run a course for a group of trainee coxes
(c) are willing to run one or more courses from January onwards
All those people identified will be provided with a training day, which will include details of the course resources and information on how to set up and run a course.
If you would like to volunteer to train to deliver the coxes course i’d be pleased to hear from you. The plan is to run training in December for the cox tutors identified, with courses then being set up and run from January 2010. If you are interested please can I ask you to contact me by Wednesday 18th November at the latest.
