John Venturi / Su Spencer RR May 9th 2020 – CANCELLED

Hi All,

With much sadness we have decided our John Venturi/Su Spencer Road Races on May 9th are now cancelled due to the ongoing health crisis we are all in the midst of  

Lots of hard work goes into this event every year including support for Women’s only grades, Junior Grades and Seniors.

The Kangarilla course is an absolute beauty on the cycling calendar – we look forward to doing it all next time.

Please take care everyone & be safe.

Regards,

SCC Committee 

Wednesday Night Training – Feb 5th 2020 6pm

Hi All,

Just a heads up on training & what is planned for tonight.

You may or may not know that we (SCC) are participating in a Coach Developer Program. This is a program that of which we are one of the first sporting clubs to participate.

It is a program to suit all sports – not just cycling so there is potential govt funding to drive it if it works & we are basically a test case to see what works & what doesn’t.

You could say we are the test dummys !!!

So far this has had more of a focus on Monday Night training sessions with the juniors.

We have started to document a series of LISC activities (LI=Learning Intention SC-Success Criteria).

Tonight we are running the training session primarily based on the LISC Activity we have defined as “swapping turns” but we are using Seniors (you guys & gals).

We are demonstrating our program tonight in front of the department who are looking to invest money into developing the Coach Development program further & expand it into many sports.

I will be running the session with 3 main activities involving swapping turns – these are (1) Paceline swapping turns like we would do in a scratch race, (2) Team Pursuit style swapping turns & (3) Motor Pacing. I have modified what I would do with the juniors for this to suit seniors a bit more.

So I would appreciate your support out there tonight in that what we are going through is some basic stuff that you probably are already competent at. Some of you go to training & concentrate on your own pet events – tonight I am asking if we could all be involved in this LISC activity.

I expect it will take between 1.5-2 hours in all.

So please bear with me – your cooperation will be much appreciated.

Hope to see you out there.

Cheers,

Bryan McIntyre

Social Night Wrap – Saturday July 20th at E’town HQ

Thank you to all who came along to our Social Night on Saturday July 20th in our beautiful new clubrooms.
Many thanks to Cathy who went beyond the call of duty once again organizing a “TDF race around the clubrooms”.
Each table formed a team, gave themselves a name, appointed a team captain & went around the TDF route answering race related questions to advance to the next stage.
A few stars in the room were able to show off their TDF knowledge.
Thanks to Tim Blackburn for being “Master of Ceremonies” & manning the microphone for us.
We had a TDF video playing lots of old footage on the big screen then Stage 14 of TDF playing live, whilst eating schnitties, having a beverage or two and enjoying each others company.
If you haven’t been in the new clubrooms – they are awesome & they make nice meals.
When track season gets underway in September/October this is the going to be place to be.
A successful night all round – we are looking to do a Tour Down Under version of the same game in TDU week next so best to do some homework on TDU facts & figures in the meantime.
