Level 2 Cyclo-Cross Coaching Award

The Level 2 Cyclo-Cross Coaching Award is a two-day course aimed at coaches new to cyclo-cross coaching who have gained coaching experience from the Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Cycling, and for existing cyclo-cross coaches wishing to develop their existing knowledge.

The course provides coaches with the tools to be able to develop their own technical understanding of cyclo-cross and associated techniques, with a focus on analysing and developing their riders’ technical performance.

The knowledge gained from this award will allow you to plan, deliver and evaluate a series of safe, ethical and effective cyclo-cross coaching sessions.
