October 24, 2005 – Cycling BC is proud to announce a new initiative to kick-start the development of BMX Coaches in our province. In conjunction with the NCCP/CBET program, Cycling BC is offering to provide the “Introduction to Competition — Part A’ to eight (8) participants at various locations in November and December of 2005. Any applicants who already have “Introduction to Competition — Part A” may apply to take “Part B”. Priority will be given to applicants in the BC01 and BC02 districts where a CCA/Cycling BC track is located.
We are offering the “Part A” course at a reduced fee of $25 (Normal course fee is $105) and “Part B” for $35 (Normal course fee is $125).
The course is the first part of NCCP/CBET LEVEL 1 and is a general sport course rather than sport-specific. Following the completion of the “Introduction to Competition — Part A”, participants will be encouraged to take either the MTB Level 1 Technical or “Introduction to Competition — Part B” course to further compliment their formal coaching education.
We ask that those who apply are serious about working towards a completion of LEVEL 2 by the end of 2006. The Technical portions of BMX are still in development with CCA so we are encouraging participants to take the MTB Technical levels until the BMX courses are available. The CCA has indicated that the BMX technical courses should be available in the spring of 2006.
Anyone interested in this offer should contact Cycling BC by November 4 to secure your position. Email: Kevin O’Brien: firstname.lastname@example.org
