The Club is planning to set up a “Youth Section” which will hopefully provide opportunities for youngsters under the age of 16 to have a go at cycling activities.
The first step will be the instigation of “cycling skills” sessions for 8 – 12 year olds.
These sessions will take place on Monday evenings at Castle Farm Recreation Centre in Kenilworth, starting on Monday 28th March.
Organiser Jackie Hobson has now set up 12 weeks of these sessions through to the middle of July and you can see more details on the Forum item “Junior Wheelers”.
Jackie is a qualified British Cycling Level 1 Coach and is currently working for her Level 2 Coach qualification. Jackie is applying for the British Cycling “Go-Ride” status for the Club in the near future (this is British Cycling’s approval standard for clubs working with youngsters).
- In the meantime, in order to run the Monday evening sessions effectively, Jackie is still needing further assistants. If you would like to help (regularly or on occasional Mondays) please get in touch with Jackie who can tell you lot’s more about the activities involved.
If you know anyone who may be interested in these youngsters sessions please let Jackie know
