About Coaching

Coaching is a vital part of any sport. Without coaches, many riders struggle to understand the science and skill behind training, and how to improve their riding.

There are hundreds of coaches at all levels throughout the country who are providing countless hours of service to athletes in all disciplines - thank you for the contribution you make to the development of our riders.

Cycling New Zealand recognises the importance of coaches. We offer training and support at all levels for Road, Track, Mountain Bike, and BMX coaching.

CNZ 2016 Foundation Coaching Courses:

Dates for the delivery of Foundation Coach Education Courses for 2016 (see below). This is due to clashes in the early part of the year. These courses will cater for any emerging or developing cycle coaches with the intention of learning happening across the codes. We have tested this cross-code approach in 2015 and the feedback has been excellent.

Again CNZ has tried to avoid major events/training or racing seasons and have targeted dates away from other happenings where possible; however please note that there will always be some sort of cross contamination.

If there is a requirement for additional courses specific to your needs then please let me know so that we can schedule this into the year plan. Any Commissaires courses will be additional to this schedule.

We may also relocate courses (N > S or S > N) depending on demand.

Some venues have yet to be arranged however this will at least give you an indication for your diaries.

To reserve your place please contact Chris Foggin Cycling New Zealand Education Manager on chris.foggin@cyclingnewzealand.nz or cell 027 507 5393
