Additional coaching opportunity for PPYCC members

There is an opportunity for PPYCC members in Youth C category and above to join in with a coaching opportunity coming up in February, with Stuart Harrison, one of our member’s dad. Please see Stuart’s email below for further details:




Having volunteered last season to help with inner ring coaching duties on a Saturday morning I’ve now commenced the British Cycling L2 coaching course aiming to qualify early 2015 in time for the start of the new season.  This will provide the club much needed additional coaching capacity in the years ahead.




Having attended an initial weekend BC training course I now need to plan and execute 6 coaching session plans leading towards a specific objective and am seeking some unsuspecting victims – I mean willing volunteers – to participate in these sessions.  For expediency I propose to condense the 6 session plans, each focusing on a core skill, into 3x 1.5 hour Saturday morning sessions during February & March held at the Preston Park track.  These will  focus on the basics of group road riding culminating in our participation in a local spring sportive of around 30-40 miles.


If you are keen and willing to participate, please contact me stating your interest and I’ll provide you with additional detail.  I need a minimum of 3 per session though 5-6 would be ideal – obviously Eliana has had to opt in so I’m off to a flying start!  Mom and/or Dad helpers  also gratefully accepted.


Many thanks,


Stuart Harrison
