BBB would like to offer you training to become a certified road captain, trainer or coach. The training is organised by ADEPS and FCWB and will teach you how to welcome new cyclists to our sport, manage a group, give first aid and all the other skills needed in order to initiate, educate or coach cyclists.
BBB aims for excellence in initiation of new cyclists, as well as managing groups of cyclists and accompanying performance oriented cyclists. To fulfill these missions we rely on experienced cyclists to captain our different group and training rides. As well as a quality label for our club, certified trainers are part of our obligations towards our subsidiary bodies.
We can best initiate new cyclists to the sport, manage group rides and accompany performance cyclists if some of our road captains are specifically trained for the job. As such BBB would like to offer to any motivated road captain to follow the FCWB training to become one of “Moniteur Sportif Initiateur”, “Moniteur Sportif Educateur” or “Moniteur Sportif Entraîneur”. These different qualifications are of increasing specialisation. It is BBB’s vision to have a broad pool of road captains with the qualification of Moniteur Sportif Initiateur. Some of these will specialise as Educateur and a select few will further specialize in Entraineur. These degrees are successive and require the previous title to advance to the next level.
To start, we would like to train as many of our road captains as Moniteur Sportif Initiateur. They are trained to manage group rides, introduce new cyclists to our sport and convert occasional riders to regular, autonomous riders. Those interested can then become Educateur (teach the basics of performance cycling) and some will then become Entraineur (Consolidate and optimise training for performance cyclists).
The Moniteur Sportif Initiateur training consists of three parts:
- The ADEPS “Cours Généraux” du moniteur sportif initiateur
- The FCWB Formation spécifique au cyclisme
- First aids in sports
