Whitworth Park Youngsters Coaching


Do you have a youngster aged 4 to 11 wanting to do more cycling? This where you need to bring them - all welcome, just turn up with a bike in good working order and helmet please! Our aim is a fun, engaging and inclusive environment; where children from 3 to 12 can challenge themselves and grow in confidence.


Kids coaching takes place usually twice a month (see dates in the newsletters here or the calendar on the homepage) at 9.30 to 10:45am at Whitworth Park in Darley Dale. The activities are run by British Cycling qualified coaches and include basic riding skills, developing confidence with individual and team exercises and games. The children involved in these sessions range in age from around 4 to 12 and vary greatly in ability. The aim of each session is to improve the ability and confidence of young riders in challenging and fun ways.

Please check the monthly newsletters for any changes.............

Before you bring your bike along please check over that all is in good working order. You could run a quick 'M Check' as the Coaches do with the youngsters at the start of their sessions - there is a link to a video here which guides you through this quick and simple process:
