Coach Training: Basic Cycling Skills – Winnipeg Saturday, May 4, 2024 @ 9:00 am- 5:00 pm

Basic Cycling Skills provides an opportunity for “on-bike” practice in skill teaching and analysis, coaching, and provided lesson plans. The program is simple, based on several pre-designed lesson plans, and adaptable to participants’ varying skill and ability levels. The program’s focus 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 sports field or parking lot. The Basic Cycling Skills course is cross-listed with the Intro to Competition & Community Initiation NCCP coaching stream.
