Welsh Cycling has today confirmed an upcoming evening of tailored workshops which will take place on Tuesday 6th March 2018, with the aim to provide guidance and support to clubs.
The workshops are a result of the annual club survey which this year became a compulsory element of club affiliations. The survey identified a number of areas where clubs seeked additional support and guidance.
Welsh Cycling South Wales Development Officer, Dan Coast said “The sport of Cycling is changing dramatically across the UK as the sport enjoys a dramatic increase in particaption across all levels.
"We want to take this opportunity to help clubs to be able to embrace this rise in popularity; and handle the challenges it will no doubt face as the demands grow on a club and it’s volunteers”
Venue: Whitchurch Rugby Sports & Social Club, Samuels Cres, Cardiff CF14 2TH
Date: Tuesday 6th March 2018
The 3 hour workshops will give club officials the opportunity to attend a workshop specifically created to help adress the needs. Clubs can send as many representatives as they wish, however please note that spaces are limited so bookings are required.
Time To Listen – Workshop for appointed welfare officers, is a 3-hour course for Club Welfare Officers (CWO). CWOs must have attended a Safeguarding and Protecting Children workshop previously and will need to bring their own reporting procedures to the workshop.
Fundamentals of Movement - This workshop has been designed by Sports Coach UK and Cardiff Metropolitan University and is particularly aimed at coaches working with younger riders. Attendees will be able to plan and deliver fundamentals of movement sessions, also advising riders of the exercises they can perform independently in order to take ownership of their own training. The three hour workshop will mostly consist of practical activity, with attendees working through each of the movements in order to understand their aims and identify correct practice. You will get a resource book to assist you in delivering fundamentals.

The workshop will then also cover other elements of club needs such as the our programmes aimed to develop social cycling in your club/ group the workshop is open to club officials and volunteers who are looking to access the tools that our club management software has to offer to manage the day to day running of your club.
