Introduction to Leadership Course

This two-day course, offered by WMCKA for the first time at the 2024 Symposium, will be an introduction to the Sea Kayak Leadership Award offered through British Canoeing.  It is open to anyone who is interested in leadership.  The instructor, who has extensive experience working with paddlers of all levels, really enjoys working with groups with a variety of skill levels and experiences and can make it valuable to all who participate.  

While there are no skill pre-requisites, it may be an opportunity for those who have previously attended WMCKAs Level III option and are looking to expand their knowledge and skills into a new area.

Individuals who wish to pursue the Leadership Award after the symposium can talk to the instructor about options for additional training and assessment.  There is now a non-tidal version of this award so additional training/assessment can be done on the Great Lakes.

Please note that course numbers will be limited to ensure the best experiences and the most effective learning
