Let’s Ride! Community Cycling- Initiation (CCI) is the NCCP context for coaches who will primarily work with novice, pre-competitive cyclists at the community level, including participants in the Active Start, FUNdamentals and early Learn to Train stages of athlete development. The program is simple, based on a number of pre-designed lesson plans, and adaptable to the varying skill and ability levels of participants. The focus of the program is on having participants develop skills which are basic to MTB, BMX, and Road, in a controlled, off-road, off-trail setting such as a sport field or parking lot.
CCI training has two parts – the “Let’s Ride!” CCI workshop (5 hrs), and a Basic Cycling Skills workshop (8 hrs). The first workshop provides information on ethical coaching, participants and their needs, basic practice planning, equipment and other important information for coaches of beginner cyclists. The second workshop provides an opportunity for “on-bike” practice in skill teaching and analysis, practice coaching and use of provided lesson plans. On completion, coaches have “Trained” status in NCCP.

Commissaire “C” Training Courses
Love Cycling? Become a Commissaire!
The Saskatchewan Cycling Association recognizes the importance of the work performed by our officials know as Commissaires in cycling. It is their role to ensure that all aspects of the competition under their supervision are conducted according to the UCI, Cycling Canada and SCA regulations.
Many people who have never been involved in sport as an official fail to appreciate the time, dedication, and effort these people put into training for and practicing their craft. Of those who are involved as Commissaires, many find their contribution to the sport, though different, to be every bit as satisfying as those who participate as athletes or coaches.
The Saskatchewan Cycling Association is looking to recruit new officials; it takes a great number of Commissaires to ensure that races in all Cycling’s sports and disciplines are properly supervised.
If you are interested in a semi-professional volunteer role that will help you to appreciate and become involved in your sport in a whole new way, then consider becoming a Commissaire.
