Coaching cycling is a rewarding experience, and you don't need to be a world class cyclist to be able to make a world of difference to your local club!

The coaching course aims to provide coaches with an introduction to coaching of the road and track cycling disciplines including the planning, implementation, analysis and revision of such coaching sessions. This is achieved through an understanding, and the application of the underpinning knowledge of the NCAS Accreditation Program specific to cycling.

The Road & Track Skills Coaching Course is discipline and event-specific to Road and Track Cycling. It is designed for, and targeted at beginner coaches who assist beginner and club riders to develop their road and track riding skills. The course addresses discipline-specific planning and evaluation, bike set-up, road and track cycling skill development and practical coaching. The course is two days in duration – day one is the Skills Instructor Coaching Course and day two is specific to road and track cycling. It is delivered by the constituent organisations of Cycling Australia, including Cycling ACT.
