Youth coaching sessions at Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome

Recommended Posts



WoSCA sessions at Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome: 4th and 25th Nov and 2, 9, 16 and 23 December

Session time: 12 noon to 3.00pm

Cost: to be confirmed, max £10 per session to include bike hire where required.


I know I've asked Jets a couple of times for riders interested in riding the velodrome. Apologies for repeating the message, but we are now able to be more specific.


The West of Scotland Cycling Association (WoSCA) has arranged track sessions at the new velodrome for youth members of our clubs. These will be structured coaching sessions, led by coaches from the Jets, Glasgow Riderz and East Kilbride Road Club. Sessions will be focussed initially on track accreditation and then further developing your track racing skills. Ideally we want riders to commit and pay for the full 6 week programme.


The maximum number of riders and the cost per session is still to be confirmed, but to help us plan can you please reply to [email protected] by Friday 26th October? We will then work out club allocations of space and confirm attendees.


Note Glasgow's policy is that riders age 8 and over can use the track, however other factors such as height and strength must be considered too. If you have any questions about whether this block 'is for you' please ask me.


If you want to take part, please reply with the following information by 5.00pm on Friday 26th October

Date of birth:


Flat track experience (e.g. Bellahouston) : none / some / lots
