This workshop looks at the skills need to guide/ leaded a group in a white water environment.
Physical Skills: Personal paddling skills, group management, emergency and rescue techniques.
Theoretical and Practical Knowledge: Equipment (types and usage), safety and emergency procedures, river hydrology, leadership, signals, individual and group coaching.
The IRF defines self-steered whitewater craft in two categories. Crafts within each category have similarities and guiding styles. The key difference between each category is where an individual is in relation to the craft and the propulsion method.
Category A: includes all craft that can carry up to three people in a seated or kneeling position on the craft. These craft are typically propelled using paddles or hands.
Category B: includes all craft where the person(s) using them are predominantly in the water. These craft are typically propelled using legs, feet, or flippers.
