Volunteering and Coaching Conference

Postby Colin A » Thu Nov 18, 2010 2:05 pm

Hi there,



Scottish Cycling will organise the second Volunteering and Coaching Conference in February next year.



And for the first time ever, Scottish Cycling will hold the Annual Awards Dinner at this conference.



The dates for the conference are Saturday 5th February and Sunday 6th February 2011, at the Stirling Management Centre, University of Stirling.



The full programme is:



Saturday 5th February

- 10:00am Official Opening

- 10:05am – 1:00pm Foundation Cycle Maintenance Course (1) run by Edinburgh Bicycle Co-op (This workshop covers the basic essentials for dealing with common roadside repairs so you can get back on your bike and home safely. It includes: wheel removal and installation; puncture repair; gear tuning, and basic brake adjustment. This class is essentially road- and trail-side 'bicycle first aid'. Participants are asked to bring their own bike.)

- 2:00pm – 5:00pm Foundation Cycle Maintenance Course (2) run by Edinburgh Bicycle Co-op (This workshop covers the basic essentials for dealing with common roadside repairs so you can get back on your bike and home safely.

Sunday 6th February

- 10:05am – 1:00pm A Club for All (This Running Sports workshop identifies the benefits of opening up your sports club, to include a wider membership base - meaning more coaches, players, officials and increased revenue, improved eligibility for lottery funding, and quality ratings such as Clubmark; whilst ensuring the involvement and support of the local community. This sports equity workshop outlines how your club can benefit from reaching all members of the community, and explains how to reach out to them - young people, older people, those on low incomes, disabled people and people from ethnic minorities.)

- 2:00pm – 5:00pm Funding for your Club (This Running Sports workshop provides practical ideas for raising funds from a range of sources, including fundraising events and sponsorship. It will also help you to identify how you can promote your club more effectively.)

- 10:05am – 5:00pm Intensive Cycle Maintenance Course run by Edinburgh Bicycle Co-op (This full-day workshop covers: puncture repair: wheel removal, locating punctures, fixing punctures, wheel refitting; wheel truing - essential for better braking; brake adjustment for powerful, silent stopping; adjusting hub bearings for maximum life and smooth running; gear adjustment: including fitting new cables and fine tuning front and rear mechanisms; bottom bracket and headset adjustment; recommendations for routine bicycle servicing. Participants are asked to bring their own bike. Limited places available.)

- 10:05am – 5:00pm Outdoor Emergency First Aid for Cyclists (This full-day SQA Accredited First Aid training will be delivered by Collective Training. The course covers essential life saving first aid techniques for the outdoor environment. The training is the only course of this type found on the new Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework. The certificate remains valid for three years. Limited places available.)

- 10:05am – 5:00pm Coaching Development Session: Peer-reviewed video analysis (This full-day training session is open to all coaches who have completed a coaching course or are currently involved in delivering coaching sessions with SC affiliated clubs.)

Not sure if anybody is attending but just to let you know that the Cycle Maintenance Courses have been cancelled due to a poor uptake - was the course I was looking at doing as well! May be an area the club could look at with regards to running maintenance courses every now and again for riders in the north-east - open to club riders and leisure riders.

I am heading down to do Timekeeping and Recording Training now instead so if any other members are down then may see you there.
