    Following a meeting tonight between Discovery Junior CC, Sport Dundee and Scottish Cycling there is an opportunity for funding towards the BC Level 2 Core coaching qualification which then further qualifies to go on to discipline specific modules (Road/ Track or MTB)

    The courses cost £395 with 30% available from Sport Dundee, a bursary from Scottish Cycling (dependant on signing up to a course run by them) and if you can commit to regular coaching at Discovery Junior CC (not every week) a likely percentage (up to 30%/) from the club.

    The more qualified coaches there are the bigger the rota and the less commitment is required?
    From personal experience this is a very worthwhile hobby to pursue that complements simply riding for pleasure or fitness.

    There are some courses in the SC calendar but if there is sufficient local interest it may be possible to run a course based at Dundee for local candidates (8 or so). The initial commitment is a 3 day course (2 + 1) spread over about 12 weeks for the core unit then a further 2 days for the discipline specific units. The club has experienced coaches that can help with completing session plans and other coursework.
