Community Initiation

This community initiation course is designed 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.
