To begin the accreditation process riders need to let the coach / supervisor know they wish to do this at the start of a Taster session / Try the track day or other coached session.
You can also email asking for details of forthcoming sessions and to arrange with one of the Coaches / Instructors to get you involved in sessions.
A new “Rider Check list for skills” will be issued and the Coach / Instructor and rider will complete this at the end of the session and it will be retained by them.
This list will be completed and signed off as the skills are taught and assessed over a minimum of four track sessions.
Once the rider has reached level 4 they can compete in the Meadowbank Track League and will be observed and assessed to see if they are riding at the required level in a minimum of three league meetings before being fully accredited.
Experienced Track Racers
Experienced riders who are members of the Meadowbank Track League for the 2012 season can apply for Provisional Accreditation which will be granted at the discretion of ESTPA Secretary or deputy who will consult with Meadowbank TL Commisaires, and / or Scottish Cycling recognised Coaches before making a decision.
The provisional rider will be issued with an information sheet* V5.50 and a report sheet**.
Riders with provisional accreditation for 2012 will have the opportunity to move to full accreditation during the season by a combination of written exam*, assessment during three league meetings or presentation of full accreditation documentation from a recognised source.
Riders can have their provisional accreditation removed at any time.
Coaches, Instructors and commisaires that are involved in the accreditation process are:
Audrey Walker, David Menzies. Graeme Fleming, Allister Watson, David Hoy and others.
** The rider report sheet can be used to let us know if any specific skills training is required or if riders would like to have experience of derny pacing, tandem riding, madison sessions or so on.
* Arrangements can be made to accommodate riders who do not have English as a first language or who have cognitive or sensory deficits that may make completion of this assessment a challenge.
