Event Information

Want to become involved in Cycling in a new way? Become a Cycling BC Commissaire!

Becoming a cycling commissaire is an excellent way for racers and enthusiasts to gain a deeper understanding of cycling and broaden their involvement in the sport they love. As a commissaire, you are able to represent Cycling BC as a trained professional to ensure fair and safe competition. There are opportunities for paid travel and advancement from provincial to national and international certification.

While many course participants will go on to train under the supervision of an experienced national commissaire, others might choose to take the course simply to augment their knowledge of the sport and to develop as a coach, team manager, or race organizer. All our welcome!

Prospective commissaires should be IT literate, in order to complete administration functions and interact with race technology. Strong communication skills are needed in order to enable prompt exchanges, provide clear instructions and give honest feedback.

This introductory evening course is for those looking to know more about cycling officiating. The course will cover the rules, teach you how to read a license, handle registration, provide information about start/finish procedures, manual timing and much more. At the conclusion of the course, you will have a greater understanding of the role of a commissaire, increased knowledge of the track specific rules and its individual events as well as understand how to progress through the ranks from a level C trainee to an international commissaire

Newly trained officials will be able to participate in Cycling BC’s mentorship program, including mentorship throughout the Western Track Challenge in the subsequent days of January 18,19 and 20. This will provide an opportunity to put into practice the theory and skills learned at the course, under the supervision of experienced commissaires over the course of the event and afterwar2019 season to complete their level C certification.
