New Rule for the Training of BCW Cycle Coaches

Aim: To provide the club with a number of qualified cycling coaches.

Border City Wheelers actively encourage and support the training and development of coaches to provide coaching to club members.

This rule relates to the funding and retention of new coaches or coaches undertaking the next level.

Members wishing to become a coach should apply to either the Junior Section Secretary or Club Chairperson for approval. Members may also be approached to become coaches.

Once it is agreed for a club member to attend a coaching course they are required to apply for a British Cycling bursary and pay the remainder of the course fee.

The balance of the course fee paid by the individual will be refunded in full, 50% after completed 5 coaching sessions and the remaining 50% after completing a further 5 coaching sessions (10 sessions in all).

On completion of the course the individual should provide the club Treasurer with a copy of the invoice etc and a copy of the certificate.
