The Colorado High School Cycling League’s Coaches Summit and Clinics bring together coaches and parent volunteers—both new and experienced—to develop skills and knowledge, share strategies, and build community. These programs provide professional development units (PDU) to obtain a Level 2 Coach licenses and above. The focus is to promote a safe, holistic approach to coaching that creates an environment in which young people can grow and thrive. This is a great opportunity to spend time with peers and get energized for the upcoming season.
Classes cover the nuts and bolts of working with high school student-athletes in the context of a high school mountain bike team and provide the basic knowledge all Coaches should be aware of and incorporate into their program. The NICA coach license program is designed to ensure that all coaches are sufficiently knowledgeable so as to be a positive influence on all riders.
Coach Licensure: Both the Annual Summit and Clinics include the required PDUs for Level 2 License. Details of the various levels of licensure can be found HERE.
Prerequisite Training: Required training to be completed before the Coach Summit. Access courses from your dashboard once registration is completed in the Pit Zone.
On-the-Bike 101 Skills Training (OTB 101): Learn the Skills to Teach the Skills with Colorado League NICA certified Skill Trainers. Coaches will learn the progressive steps needed to teach anyone (even yourself) foundational mountain biking skills. You will learn experiential teaching techniques, how to accommodate different learning styles, and how to create a positive learning environment for young riders. Most of this workshop is experiential and on the bike, so please bring your bike, water bottle and appropriate riding and safety gear for the weather.
