Mountain Bike Skills
Apr 17 at 8:30am - 4:00pm$100
This outdoor workshop helps you practice teaching intermediate mountain bike skills and tactics in a safe and friendly environment.
The module builds on the concepts covered in the pre-requisites and takes place on a local mountain bike trail system. To pass the module, participants must prepare two lesson plans (one skill and one tactic) and be ready to teach them to the group. This activity is included in questions 52b and 52c of the Club Coach Journal.
After completing this course, you will have met Cycling BC’s expectations for assistant club coaches. To achieve certification and fulfill a club head coach position, complete the final theory module and submit your portfolio for evaluation.
This module is included in the Club Coach (NCCP Competition-Introduction) context and is officially titled: NCCP Comp-Intro Skills & Tactical Practical: Mountain Bike
