Who is it for?

The Level 2 Coaching Certificate is recommended for volunteers that coach regularly at their club and anyone who will be working as a paid coach e.g., for a ski school or holiday company (such as Neilson Active Holidays). The qualification meets the minimum standard for coaching unaccompanied at any level within the sport and is therefore recommended to coaches working with any level of participant from beginner to advanced. On successful completion of the qualification, candidates will be certified to coach unassisted anywhere in the UK and abroad.

What do you learn? 
The UKCC Level 2 is a 5 day coaching course and covers many areas relevant to being a SAFE, FUN and EFFECTIVE coach including safety practices, delivery skills, customer service, risk assessment, advanced boat driving etc.. You will ski/wakeboard, drive and coach for each other on the course up to the standard of doing such tricks as Ollie, Backside 180's, Wake Jumps, surface 360's, and crossing the wakes and perfoming deep water starts on 1-ski. All candidates must complete the BWSW Level 1 beforehand but both courses can be completed together over a 7 day course.

Prior to attending the course, all candidates must have the following:

• BWSW Ski Boat Driver Level 2 (SBD2) AND have at least 10 hours experience driving for water skiers/wakeboarders. 
• Be aged 16 years or over (note, to be a licensed coach you must be 17).  
• Be able to get up on 1-ski and cross the wakes and be able to perform a 180, Wake Jump and an Ollie on a Wakeboard (note, those who are unable to perform these will need to demonstrate experience in delivering these skills).
