Cycling BC has three coaching courses scheduled for February:
iRide Coaching & NCCP Basic Cycling Skills in Vancouver (130 West Broadway) on February 7th, running 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. This course will train coaches who would like to work with the iRide program.
Let's Ride! Community Cycling Initiation (CCI) is the NCCP context for coaches who will primarily work with novice, pre-competitive cyclists at the community level, including participants in the Active Start, FUNdamentals and early Learn to Train stages of athlete development (outlined in Cycling Canada's Long-Term Athlete Development Model).
The program is simple, based on a number of pre-designed lesson plans, and adaptable to the varying skill and ability levels of participants. The focus of the program is on having participants develop skills that are basic to MTB, BMX, and Road, in a controlled, off-road, off-trail setting such as a sport field or parking lot.
The training required to become a Community Coach is participation in two NCCP workshops: the Community Coach "Let's Ride", and the Basic Cycling Skills session, which includes practical training. These workshops have been combined into a full training event.
The Let's Ride! Community Cycling Initiation stream is structured as follows:
Let's Ride! Community Cycling Initiation
Ideal for parents, volunteers, teachers and others who occasionally work with youth or adults new to cycling, this one day, in-class workshop covers the basic principles of coaching including ethical decision making, planning and organizing a practice, cycling safety and risk management, and introducing disabled riders to the sport.
Basic Cycling Skills
This workshop trains coaches on the instruction of basic cycling skills. Workshop material covers skill analysis, observation, and corrective feedback - all vital skills for coaches of both new and experienced cyclists looking to improve.
The cost of this course is $85/participant

NCCP Ready to Race! Training to Race workshop - this is an online course, and will run at 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm EST on February 8-10 and 15-17 (consecutive Monday-Wednesday).
Ready to Race! Introduction to Competition (R2R) is the context for coaches who will primarily work with new competitive cyclists at the community and club level. These athletes will likely be in the Learn to Train, to Train to Train stages of LTAD, although the context could apply to any new racer of any age. These athletes have basic but developed cycling skills and the desire to begin competing within a structured training and competition program. They should have passed through an entry-level Community Initiation program (CCI) to help them develop the basic skills.
Please note that this course requires a minimum of 5 participants, and has a maximum of 20. Coaches will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis.
