The MTB coach development sessions are tutor led coach development sessions for coaches.  The sessions will focus on and aim to develop two elements of coaching: one technical aspect of mountain biking and one coaching skill.   This is to ensure we are able to transfer theory to practice, helping develop more knowledgeable and effective coaches.


  • Develop discipline specific coaching expertise
  • Increase knowledge
  • Improve practice
  • Build on the knowledge gained at the L2 MTB course
  • Move coaches up the pathway
  • Network and share idea’s with other coaches

Who are the sessions aimed at?

  • All MTB coaches wanting to develop their coaching
  • Aspirant MTB coaches that are aiming to complete the L2 MTB course in the near future
  • Any coaches who want to further their MTB coaching

Session content:

Each session will be a day in duration and incorporate several practical coaching activities as well as some theory to support and underpin the practical work.  Included will be expert coaching demonstrations, tailor-made resources, planned coaching challenges, innovation sessions, peer to peer coaching as well as tutor led coaching. 

The sessions are designed in such a way that they can be attended as stand-alone one off session, or if all are attended the sessions will take coaches on a journey layering knowledge session by session.

For the remainder of 2017 we are going to change our approach and switch to a needs-led session content.

Each session will aim to specifically address the needs of the coaches that attend that session. So, prior to the session we will ascertain the coaches needs and design the session around those. This way we are providing the most bespoke coach development possible.
