Sport Nutrition Workshop

USA Cycling is excited to announce the addition of sports nutrition seminars beginning in 2012.  The seminars will be geared toward endurance cycling although the information can be applied to distance running or triathlon.  So anyone with an interest in sports nutrition is welcome to attend.

We are working on the schedule for the workshops.

The seminar will have a mix of lecture and small group practical activities.  The seminar will cover some basic nutrition (macro- and micronutrients) along with dealing with daily nutrition issues, pre-race, during race and post-race nutrition.

Registration will be available through your My USA Cycling page under "VIEW AVAILABLE CLINICS".  The cost varies depending on one's membership status.

The CEU value for the course may vary depending on the number of days/hours.  The workshop may run a single day or 1.5 days.

Coaching Summit

The coaching summit is held every even numbered year and generally is held in Colorado Springs.

The coaching summit allows coaches from across the country to come together to share.  The topics are usually those that are not covered in enough depth at the coaching clinics or that are popular enough to warrant inclusion. Speakers in the past have included Randy Wilber, PhD, FACSM, Max Testa, MD, Jamie Staff, Dean Golich, Hunter Allen, Allen Lim, PhD, Inigo Mujika, PhD, and Istvan Balyi.

Information on the 2012 Summit can be found here.
