An introductory coaching course will be available for those interested in getting into coaching. The Skills Instructor Course (SI) provides participants with an introduction to the basics of teaching cycling, including the planning, implementation, analysis and revision of beginner and intermediate cycling coaching sessions. This is achieved through an understanding and application of the underpinning knowledge of the NCAS Accreditation Program specific to cycling.
The course is one day in duration and is delivered by the constituent federations (State and Territory Sporting Organisations) of Cycling Australia. For those who have just completed the road aspect of the course, you will only need to register for the track day. For those who have not completed the road part, then you must do both days.
