The vision of the AusCycling Coach and Instructor Pathway is to develop skills and competencies that enhance our coaches skills and engagement, enable personal development, support increases in participation at all levels and help with the achievement of personal and performance goals of those being coached.
The AusCycling pathway identifies two key streams: Coach and Instructor.
An Instructor is someone that helps the participants develop the technical skills and confidence to ride a bike within their chosen discipline.
A Coach is someone that helps the participants develop the physiological and psychological requirements and technical skills for competition.
Both roles are equally critical in the development of cycling participation and performance. A person may take both pathways as part of their development.
The AusCycling Coaching and Instructor pathway aligns to the FTEM Framework which focus on increasing competencies of the coach or instructor, working from Foundations to Mastery.
The alignment of the Coaching and Instructing pathway to the participant pathway ensures that the coach develops the skills, knowledge, aptitude and experience that ensure riders are provided the best guidance and support for people wishing to develop, grow and achieve their coaching knowledge to better support the goals of individuals they coach or instruct.
*The Development and Advanced Skills Coach and Instructor courses are under development and will be made available in 2021/2022.
