Event description
Fun cycle coaching sessions for young riders using British Cycling development pathways to teach your children the foundations of cycling.

About this event

Saturday mornings

We run weekly Go-Ride Cycling Coaching sessions on Saturday mornings (10-12).

Sessions are open to under 16s, although we can take 12-15 year olds on club rides.

Sessions are primarily aimed at under 12s who can ride a bike, be that a balance bike or pedal bike (without stabilisers).

We use the British Cycling talent development pathways to teach your children the fundamentals of cycling before coaching them on their favoured discipline.

We do fun activities and games using cones, bean bags, tennis balls, limbo bars, ramps etc to enhance the cycling skills of your child and give them a good foundation for the future.

Our more advanced students are using BMX style pump tracks, taking on trail centres and we're looking this year at how to get some road cycling done on quiet lanes.

Pedal sessions are for children who no longer use stabilisers or a balance bike and are looking to increase their confidence.

Skills sessions are for children who are confident on a bike.

Both our Pedal and Skills sessions are run 10-11:15.

Our Balance sessions are for children new to cycling, who may have just had their stabilisers taken off or who are still using a balance bike. Balance sessions are run 11:15-12.

Cost

Sessions cost £3 for non-members and £2 for club members. Please book a place through Eventbrite. When booking, please let us know your child's name for the booking.

Before booking a place, please read the section titled COVID-19. By booking a place you agree to adhere to the points set out there.

Under 12s membership is now an option at a discounted £10 for the year.

Herringthorpe

We've now got a new - permenant - home on Herringthorpe Playing Fields. We'll primarily be using the hillside around the back of the athletics track (MAP). Please lookout for the SCC tent or flag.

Free off-street parking is available just off Middle Lane South towards the junction with Dryden Road (MAP) To access the space we use, follow the tarmac/gravel path around the top-side of the athletics track.

Requirements

There’s no minimum age requirement for these sessions other than can your child follow instructions and use a bike with brakes and without stabilisers (A balance bike is fine for this also). Our youngest member is three years old. These aren’t sessions for teaching your child to ride a bike, but to enhance their skills and grow their confidence. If you're not sure, bring them along. We can provide advice and guidance no matter what their cycling ability.

They will need a bike with working brakes (if a pedal bike) and the bar ends need to be plugged. As well as a correctly fitting helmet.

COVID-19

Booking is required, as we have to keep a record of attendees for Track & Trace purposes and limit the numbers in sessions to adhere to maximum group sizes set out by British Cycling.

There will also be strict adherence of social distancing guidelines.

We've worked hard to make sure sessions will be safe. We expect children and parents to follow all guidance currently in place as set out by the government.

Children will be expected to use the provided hand sanitiser on arrival.

Groups will be kept apart in the space provided using colour coding. Your child will be handed a cleaned, coloured bib at the start of a session and expected to keep it on at all times. They will then only work with the children/coach of the same coloured bib grouping.

Parents must wait in their child's group waiting area.

If anyone in your household is showing any COVID-19 symptoms please do not attend a session. You will be asked to leave immediately.

Following Track & Trace protocol, you must also notify us if you or your child show any COVID-19 symptoms within 14 days of attending a session.

Safeguarding

All coaches hold relevant qualifications and insurance through British Cycling. They are first aid trained, DBS checked and they've done safeguarding training.

We also have Club Welfare Officers and follow British Cycling's Safeguarding policies.

Your child will be in safe hands.

Get in touch

If this is something that interests you and your child or you have friends/relatives that aren’t club members but have children that may be interested then please do get in touch with us via email on coaching@sitwell.cc or using our contact form.

I hope you’re excited as we are.
