As we prepare for the 2015 race season and Race calendar meeting on Wednesday January 14th, I am sending out a reminder to all clubs that they may appoint a Club rep to represent your club on each of the Race discipline committees. Club Presidents or Club Reps should advise the discipline chair by email as to who will be representing their club and for which discipline.

Committees are the representive voice of our stakeholders and have the mandate to inform decision making.
Committee collaboration ensures that all voices are heard and influence the decisions that are made.
Ideas and concerns should be directed according to the reporting lines as defined in the organizational chart (Here).
Club reps, represent their Club. Information flows from club members to the club rep. Club reps collaborate with the Discipline Coordinator and other race discipline Clubs Reps to decide on activities important to the growth and success of their discipline. Meetings are led by the Discipline coordinator. Communication also flows from the Discipline coordinator to the committee. Club reps are expected to keep their clubs & members informed about the discipline they represent as well as take a working role on any actions/activities as deemed important by the Race discipline committee.
If you have any questions please contact the Discipline Coordinator as listed above or the MCA Executive Director at email@example.com or 204-925-5686
Commissaires play a critical role in our sport, ensuring that cycling races are held in the best possible conditions and that races are run fairly by ensuring that the rules are uniformly applied. The MCA is pleased to provide the entry level course for those that are interested in becoming a Commissaire.

Technical – 2 days of classroom training Practical Assessment – Officiate in a training capacity under the guidance of the instructor

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. 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 which are basic to MTB, BMX, and Road, in a controlled, off-road, off-trail setting such as a sport field or parking lot.
CCI training has two parts – the “Let’s Ride!” CCI workshop, and a Basic Bicycling Skills workshop. The first workshop provides information on ethical coaching, participants and their needs, basic practice planning, equipment and other important information for coaches of beginner cyclists. The second workshop provides an opportunity for “on-bike” practice in skill teaching and analysis, practice coaching and use of provided lesson plans. The community initiation classroom course must be completed before you complete the Basic Bike Skills workshop. On completion, coaches have “Trained” status in NCCP. Read more…
