Matlock CC Youth Team Coaching

 

With the news of Rob Williams’ recent Level 3 coaching qualification, Rob and the Club are now able to offer Matlock CC Youth and Junior riders coaching assistance which the club has wanted to do for some time! Below are details of various levels of coaching on a sliding scale of pricing from free through to a 'premium' package. Club youth members will get a significant discount.

Riders / parents can email Rob on matlockcc.coaching@gmail.com to enquire and for information on costs. Note these are aimed at first claim Youth B, Youth A and Junior riders. Younger than that we don’t recommend structured training, just ride your bike and enjoy it!
