Episode Info:

Greg Spencer has spent a good proportion of his life afloat...he is a paddler...he is passionate about all forms of self propelled floating water craft...he particularly loves canoes and he loves helping other people to fall in love with canoes.

In this conversation, Greg and I explore how canoe coaching sets so comfortably with the ecological approach and how it has influenced the ways in which he works to develop a club environment that is about "people learning from people".

We cover a lot of ground including...

- Why young people make the best coaches
- Why the least psychologically safe space for kids is an age grade team
- How he wants to develop clubs that are 'nested social learning spaces'
- The role of the coach as a facilitator of learning - a 'guide by the side'

I hope you enjoy the conversation as much as I did
