The Ciclismo Youth Foundation (CYF) is hosting a Coaching Academy for local cyclists interested in coaching CYF programs. The clinics will teach you the methods and terminology used to teach Northern Colorado youngsters, mostly middle and high school age riders, how to enjoy riding and racing their road and mountain bikes. The Coaching Academy will take place on March 9th and 10th at the CSU Powerhouse. More details below.
Do I have to be fast? No.
Do I have to be able to huck and shred my bike? No.
Do I have to be an expert on race day nutrition and tactics. Heck, no!
Is it just for mountain biking? Nope, the methods and terminology will work across mtb, road, cx and all cycling disciplines.
Will I be paid if I sign up to coach after attending the academy? Yes, a lilbit.
What's this going to cost me? Zero dollars. Maybe some skin and pride.
Do I have to be pumped to be stoked? Absolutely.
