ABOUT THE PAA
The Professional Anglers Association (PAA) are a support organisation for a nationwide network of fully qualified, licenced angling coaches. With our assistance and support, these Coaches recruit and teach thousands of new and budding anglers each year.
Every PAA Member Coach must be qualified and licenced through their relevant National Angling Governing Body. This provides the assurance that coaches registered with us have undergone specialist training and passed recognised coaching practical and theory examinations.
There are two levels of coaching qualification; Level 2 (Lead Coach) and Level 1 (Support Coach). A support coach cannot practice without a lead coach being in attendance. For this reason you will only find our Level 2 Coach Members listed on our Find A Coach service.
By using a Level 2 qualified Coach you will have the additional assurance that your coach has been first aid trained, holds insurance for their coaching activities, hold a current certificate in safeguarding and holds a current enhanced DBS Certificate. We request that all our member coaches provide evidence to their clients of the above on or before the first coaching session.
Our members deliver courses in coarse, game or sea angling and many coach in more than one discipline.
