Held over the month, you will learn the breakdown of strokes and skills, develop the ability to recognise areas of improvement in people, you are coaching and the steps to allow them to develop to their full potential.
You will get to work with many customers in a supervised situation. Plenty of feedback will be given.
There is an extensive amount to cover both on the water and on paper so bring your “A-Game” and find out just how much fun working in the outdoors can be.
