NCCP – Community Initiation – Practice Planning

February 7 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Let’s Ride! Community Initiation – Practice Planning

Let’s Ride! Community Initiation (CI) is the NCCP context for coaches who will primarily work with novice, pre-competitive cyclists at the community level, including participants in the Active Start, FUNdamentals and early Learn to Train stages of athlete development. The program is simple, based on a number of pre-designed lesson plans, and adaptable to the varying skill and ability levels of participants. The focus of the program is on having participants develop skills which are basic to MTB, BMX, and Road, in a controlled, off-road, off-trail setting such as a sport field or parking lot.

Course Info:

This course is run virtually as 2x2hr online courses which is a necessary component of the Community Coaching stream. Practice planning needs to be taken before participating in the on-bike coaching course “Basic Cycling Skills”. Participants will learn necessary skills such as proper practice structure including warm up, skill development, physical preparation, cool down etc. Upon completion, coaches will be able to modify training sessions appropriately based on developmental, physical and environmental factors and identify risk factors that may be encountered during training while implementing an emergency Action Plan. All attendees will understand the importance of logistics and development of a practice plan, establish an appropriate structure for a practice and identify appropriate activities for each part of the practice.
