Scottish Cycling & Active Advantage coaching CPD series

“Maximise, Motivate and Master”

Coaching skills and how you coach are equally important as your technical coaching knowledge and what you coach.  This series of CPD workshops will teach you the skills to be a better and more effective coach.  The workshops are aimed at Club, Lead and Performance coaches.

The format of shorter workshops (90mins in this case) aims to engage and appeal to busy coaches. By coordinating the CPD and track league this will allow coaches to immediately utilise the skills learned in the workshops to therefore increase the impact of the CPD.
