Become A CYF Coach


The Ciclismo Youth Foundation is hosting a Coaching Academy for local cyclists interested in coaching CYF programs. The clinics will teach you the methods and terminology used to teach Northern Colorado youngsters, mostly middle and high schoolers, how to enjoy riding and racing their bikes.

Questions answered

Do I have to be fast? No.

Do I have to be able to huck and shred? No.

Do I have to be an expert on race day nutrition and tactics. Gross, no!

Is it just for mountain biking? Nope, the methods and terminology will work across mtb, road, cx and all cycling disciplines.

Will I be paid if I sign up to coach after attending the academy? Yes, a lilbit.

What’s this going to cost me? Zero dollars. Maybe some skin and pride.

Do I have to be pumped to be stoked? Absolutely.

Here is a sneak preview:

April 7 – “The Ciclismo Way” – A Unique Coaching Method for Youth in Sport.
April 14 – CYF On-Line Resources and Basic First Aid Training – Everything You NEED to Know.
April 21 – “Bike Kung Fu” – The Foundation of Everything We Teach.

* Each session will run from 9am till 12 noon in Fort Collins.

April 28, 29 – NICA Coaches Conference in Eagle, CO*

*The NICA conference is separate from the CYF coaching summit and not a requirement. But it’s a great conference for coaches that need the training. There is a cost to the NICA conference.
