As a community based club run by volunteers we have kept the costs as low as possible.
Novice – 1 hour – £3 Intermediate group – 1 hour – £3 or 2 hours £5 Advanced group – 2 hours – £5
As in previous years, with the aim of improving the focus of the coaching and to cater for a range of abilities, riders will be strictly allocated to one of three groups. Movement between groups will be by coach agreement only. The proposed coaching subjects and what coaches are looking for in order to move riders between groups is shown below. The outline programme is subject to change, for example due to weather conditions.
Due to Bank holidays there are 17 coaching weeks, it is our intention that weeks 9 and 17 will consist of some competitive games and activities based around the coaching already done.
