They’re not much use if you want to teach the world to sing, but if you want to teach them how to cycle, the next round of BCF Level Two Club Coach courses are ideal.
They start in September and run through to the spring of 2002, with a fascinating and comprehensive syllabus. The course is spread over three days (two weekends) and packs in an incredible amount of information on issues as diverse as Technique Training, Child Protection, Creating a Training Plan and the Principals of Conditioning. There are also home study sections, including Nutrition and a practical coaching assessment on the final day of the course.
Course fees are £170 per person to new coaches and are free to existing ABCC and BCCA qualified coaches. However, there are a number of funding opportunities to support coaches taking the course and the BCF Coach Education staff are always happy to offer advice on this or any other aspect of the course.
For an application form and info pack call Margaret Nolan on 0161 230 2301, ext 2275, email or write to Margaret at Coach Education, BCF, National Cycling Centre, Stuart St, Manchester M11 4DQ.
