iRide Logo 2017.V4 (iRide Only) - iRide Sprockids - (Black) (Short)A weekly after-school program designed for iRide Levels 3 and beyond

iRide Sprockids is an initiative that connects the 8-week Sprockids after-school skills curriculum with support from Cycling BC’s iRide program to create more opportunities for local youth to develop their bike skills in a safe and fun environment. Grants are available for new leaders (parents, teachers, community leaders aged 16+) who wish to bring iRide Sprockids to their community.

iRide Sprockids can be implemented in your community to fill existing programming gaps by either:

  • School Bike Club led by trained teachers
  • Community Park program led by local trained cycling enthusiasts
  • Recreation Center program led by Cycling BC iRide instructors

To a maximum of 6-10 participants per leader, each iRide Sprockids program is 4-8 weeks long and includes games and challenges from both the Sprockids and iRide curriculum. Typical sessions include skill development, bicycle rides, and games appropriate to participant age and ability, following the Cycling Canada Long Term Athlete Development Model (LTAD). Program leaders choose the format of their program; Cycling BC suggests 4-8 sessions, meeting 1-2 days a week, and is specific to either iRide Level 3, 4 or 5.

iRide Sprockids leaders are qualified by the National Coaches Certification Program (NCCP)and Sprockids, receive mentorship from the iRide Regional Coordinator and undergo a background check. Cycling BC’s iRide program subscribes to the Coaches Association of Canada’s Responsible Coaches Movement and works with High Five: Healthy Child Development and the Canucks Autism Network to help our instructors create an engaging and effective learning environment. Sessions are covered by Cycling BC’s insurance policy with Jones Brown.
