I am grateful to Darrell Cobner for sharing news of a British Canoe Union Conference held last weekend.
The program is here.

The theme of the conference was Coaching Chaos – Making Sense of the Coach’s Learning Journey.
From the program flyer:
- John Lyle (Crafting Knowledge, Developing Expertise)
- Martin Chester (The Coach’s Learning Journey)
- Bill Taylor and Ryan Groom (The Coach as Educator)
- Lara Cooper (Reflective Practice)
I was fortunate to have spent many years in canoe slalom and am delighted to see such a great mix of theory and practice. I imagine that as the conference was open to all levels of coaching there would have been some fascinating conversations about journeys and the scenery on the way.
My praxis started at Symonds Yat and is still going thanks to conferences like this.
