Group Coaching

CCSD Training Philosophy

Group coaching for a team or a club provides an excellent environment for peer instruction, whereby those learning codify the knowledge gained by also practicing fundamental teaching. This commitment by the group to better themselves in sport forms a strong reciprocal relationship between the coach and the athletes, fostering a sense of team achievements.

The group should encourage and make a commitment to read materials assigned to them, complete logs, and undergo testing, as needed. They must also commit to practice the information leaned as a group as often as feasible

Coaching is a positive step in any cycling group’s growth. A coach is a sounding board, motivator, and community builder. The coach is always open to group suggestions and expects the group to be open to his or her suggestions.

Thinking long term is key. The coach thinks long term (i.e., months and years), and the group is expected to think long term, as well. Goals must be defined and revisited via further group coaching or a continuing question and answer with individuals from the group and the coach via e-mail.
