Our Coaching Philosophy

Our coaching is athlete centred and driven by development, performance and athlete welfare.  We believe that, with a good coaching structure, it is possible for everybody to reach their individual potential and have great experiences along the way.  In order to do this we feel it is essential to focus on all components of performance; physical, psychological, technical and tactical.

We feel it is important to consider the individual needs of the rider and seek ongoing input from them in order to ensure both rider and coach are aligned.  We encourage an open and honest relationship and believe effective communication between the rider and coach is vital to the development of the rider.

We bring our own years of experience from many areas of the sport to our coaching.  Underpinning these are sound coaching principles, current exercise science and best practice guidelines.  We strongly believe in fair sport and anti-doping.

We strive to develop and improve our coaching through continuing professional development.  If we don’t know something we will either find out or seek expertise from another professional such as physiotherapists, nutritionists and strength and conditioning coaches.

And Finally…..

We work closely together as a team for the best outcome for the athlete; we use our complementary skill sets to achieve this.

We can honestly say we have experienced the excitement, disappointment, setbacks, suffering, exhaustion, successes, banter and fun that the emotional roller coaster of sport can bring; this, we hope, helps us fully understand the athletes we work with.
