DCV Youth Coaching 2017

DCV Youth Coaching is back!

Youth coaching for kids any age (so long as they don’t need stabilisers) up to 16.

We propose to run the sessions on the first and third Sundays of each month from March 5th to October 15th at the Sniperley Park and Ride Durham as we did last year.

Each session will be 1 hour between 3.30 and 4.30

We propose to run two groups in the sessions –

Go-Ride & Academy

Go-Ride is for any youth who wants to get better at riding and practice their skills.

Academy is aimed at the more advanced riders who want to race, with the initial focus on Criterium racing (drop handlebar race bikes) although kids don’t necessarily need a race bike to get started in the sessions. Dependant on volunteers we will be looking at supporting the Academy riders in North East Races this season

At present we have one British Cycling Level 2 coach committed which means we can have a total of 20 participants so we need volunteers to assist in the coaching and ideally to become qualified themselves to increase capacity.

With limited availability we will again set up an online ticket facility where tickets can be purchased up to midnight the night before the sessions. Places are first come first served.

Responding to comments last year we will now have any spare places available on the day to pay on arrival. However with places limited we urge pre-booking to avoid disappointment. (pre booked tickets will be discounted compared to on the day entry)

Dates and booking will be put live by 26th Feb following the feedback period.

We would also like to start fund raising to purchase loan race bikes so that kids can try them before committing to purchase.
