Child & Youth Coaching 2019

Qatar Cycling and Triathlon Federations in partnership with Losail Circuit Sports Club and Qatar Cyclists announces the launch of cycling coaching for children. Sessions are run by UCI qualified coaches under the supervision of QCF and are held in a safe, traffic-free environment at Losail International Circuit.

This is skills coaching rather than fitness

Sessions run every Wednesday 5:15pm – 6:15pm from January to April, except when the circuit is closed for motorsport events.

REQUIREMENTS

Each child must provide his/her own bicycle and wear an approved cycling helmet.

Parents are not required to be present during sessions but must sign a liability waver at the start.  

IS YOUR CHILD READY?

Your child should be able to ride unassisted without training wheels.

The sessions develop cycling skills and the programme builds each week to the point where children will be confident riding in a group and will compete in a mini-race. It is best if your child attends regularly in order to benefit from the progression in coaching from one week to the next.

Coaching is age appropriate and will be run in the following age groups:

Group 1 – 6 to 7 years
Group 2 – 8 to 9 years
Group 3 – 10 to 11 years
Group 4 – 12+ years

ARRIVAL & REGISTRATION

To ensure a place is available for you it is advisable to reserve a place

At the entrance to Losail Circuit you will be directed by marshals to parking.

On arrival, complete the usual Losail Circuit registration and then meet next to the Qatar Cyclists garage in the pit area – look for the “Kids Session” sign. Please be on time as the groups will disperse to other locations.
