This module is officially titled: NCCP Ready to Race! Introduction to Competition Skills & Tactics Practical: Road in the Coaches Association of Canada LOCKER system.
This outdoor club skills module helps you practice teaching intermediate road cycling skills and tactics for participants in the “Learn to Train” and “Train to Train” stages of the Long Term Athlete Development Model.
The module builds on the concepts covered in the pre-requisites and takes place in a parking lot and on local roadways. To pass the module, participants must prepare two lesson plans (one skill and one tactic) and be ready to teach them to the group. This activity is included in questions 52b and 52c of the Club Coach Journal.
After completing this module and all remaining SafeSport pre-requisites, you may fulfill the role of Club Assistant Coach at a Cycling BC club or team. A certificate of completion (yellow) is awarded and you may apply to Cycling BC’s coach database to showcase your expertise. To achieve full certification and fulfill the role of club head coach, complete the final theory module and submit your portfolio for evaluation.
This particular event is organized and facilitated by Cycling BC.
The pathway includes additional on-demand and facilitated SafeSport modules that are required to lead Cycling BC practices and clinics. However, only Club Theory A and Basic Skills are necessary to participate in this module.
