The Level 1 Road & Track is a coaching course aimed at people who want to coach club level and state/territory championship level road and track riders to develop and advance their road and track technical skills, riding fitness and racing skills. The coaching course addresses generic coaching and its application to road and track coaching, and teaches coaches how to nurture and develop road and track riders. The accreditation allows you to independently plan, prescribe and evaluate road and track training for road and track riders. The work of coaches at this level will be vital in supporting new, developing riders and enhancing the performance of existing riders.
