Sprocket Rocket Instructor Training

Sprocket Rocket is a foundation Cycling Skills Programme which focuses on delivery to youths aged 7 to 11 years old but can actually be delivered to anyone of any age.

The Sprocket Rocket Programme was originally developed by BMX Australia and has been modified by Cycling Ireland to suit the Irish environment.

Sprocket Rocket Programme is aimed at developing basic skills required to ride a bike. The programme requires riders to complete skill tests at three levels of difficulty for each basic skill.        

The programme is aimed at:
  • Providing a strong cycling skill foundation for newly recruited riders aged between 7 and 11 years old, however can be delivered to new recruits of any age.
  • Skill development, including general cycling skills which will lay the foundation for more advanced learning of specific cycling skills (Track, Road, Mountain Biking and BMX) in the future.
  • Fostering enjoyment and “want” of participation.
  • Teaching riders fair-play and rules at their level, rather than promoting a win at all cost attitude.
  • Reducing the pressure of being thrown into competition without the necessary foundation skills.
  • Reduce burnout of youth and junior riders by over competing them at a young age.
  • Provide direction to clubs and coaches on how to increase club participation through a standardised youth focused programme.
