The Level 2 Coaching Riders with a Disability is a one day workshop aimed at developing the knowledge and skills of existing disability coaches and supporting those who wish to coach disabled riders for the first time. The workshop will assist coaches with their ability to plan, deliver and evaluate a series of safe, ethical and effective coaching sessions for groups of riders with a disability and be able to integrate individual riders into their existing coaching sessions within level 2 coaching environments.
What are the benefits of doing the workshop:
Upon successful completion of the workshop coaches should become more confident and better equipped when working with riders with a disability. The workshop is a continuing professional development (CPD) module, and you will therefore not receive a qualification, however a certificate of attendance will be provided. As a British Cycling member and licensed coach, you will have access to an impressive list of benefits. These include:
£5 million professional indemnity insurance
The British Cycling Level 2 Coaching Handbook: Coaching Riders with a Disability rrp £9.99
Access to free coaching and technical support
Increased networking opportunities within this specialised sector
Do I need to bring anything to the course?
Coaches are required to supply their own bike and helmet for taking part in the practical sessions. Bikes used in the session should be in good working order and have two working brakes. Candidates do not need to be competent cyclists to take part in the activities. If you are unable to take part in this session for any reason (e.g. illness, no bike or helmet) please inform Scottish Cycling's Coaching and Education team prior to the course so that alternative arrangements can be made to involve you in the activities.
