My personal coaching philosophy is to provide a positive experience for the Athletes whom I coach. I will allow them to achieve their full potential in the sport of cycling. Safety of my coachees and others is my number one priority.
I will encourage mutual respect between myself and my riders by having an open an honest approach to my coaching allowing leadership and guidance to provide effective development of the riders. I will allow the rider to be independent and to provide for their own development through self reflection. I will provide a leadership style appropriate to environment of the coaching taking into account necessary health and safety for the individual and others.
I will commit to the individual rider to develop a simple structured way to coach focussing on all aspects of the rider’s development not just Physiological but Psychological, Tactical and Technical development aspects of their riding, I will be fair and equitable to all.
I will provide constructive criticism in my assessment and develop rider’s feedback into my own coaching to improve my coaching. I will create an environment for both myself and my riders for self reflection. I will attend BC courses to develop myself each year as part of a continuous professional development.
I will ensure I adhere to the necessary British Cycling Code of Practice for Cycling Coaches and aspects of any individual agreement I have with the specific rider.
