On-the-bike Skills Training 101 & 201
April 7 @ 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
Hello NJ NICA Coaches – just in time for the start of our 2019 racing season, we’re offering another session of the NICA On-the-bike (OTB) 201&101 Skills Training for coaches, led by NJICL sponsor and national coach support-trained staff of Cognition Coaching.
**Coaches must have completed OTB 101 instruction prior to attending the OTB 201 course** We do not offer both on the same day to afford coaches the opportunity to practice and hone the 101 skills prior to advancing to 201. For this reason, we have scheduled 201 in the morning and 101 in the afternoon.
You’ll learn the NICA-endorsed training method, which includes the progressive steps needed to teach anyone (even yourself) both basic and advanced mountain biking skills. You will also learn about experiential teaching techniques, how to accommodate different learning styles, and how to create a positive learning environment for young riders.
Both sessions will be conducted at Woodlot Park, 124 New Rd in Monmouth junction, NJ. It will be held outdoors, so please bring your bike and appropriate riding and safety gear for the weather – we recommend layers. The fee incudes a NICA OTB 101 or 201 field guide for your pack.
