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.

The award will also give you all of the necessary skills and information you need to progress riders from their first Cyclo-cross session to their first competition and is the minimum requirement for the delivery of Go-Ride Cyclo-cross Gears 5 and 6.

  • Creating a cyclo-cross coaching environment.

Assessment

Coaches are assessed through a 15 minute coaching session delivered on day two of the course, followed by the completion of an assessment workbook and the delivery of six one hour cyclo-cross specific coaching sessions post course.

How much does the award cost?

The course costs £250. There may be some financial assistance available via our funding pages.
