Coaches' Resources


Thank you for your continued participation as a USAC coach. Below are important resources and forms concerning licensing, upgrades, athlete health, and insurance.

USA Cycling and Fast Talk Laboratories have announced a new partnership to improve cycling coach development and education. Through this partnership, all active USA Cycling licensed coaches get free access to Fast Talk Laboratories and its growing knowledge base that includes hundreds of how-to guides, articles, videos, and podcast episodes on training, coaching, sports nutrition, physiology, recovery, and sport psychology. 

Featured in this library is “The Craft of Coaching with Joe Friel,” an all-new online learning experience from the world-recognized cycling and triathlon coach. In his new resource, Friel lays out the ultimate guide to becoming a better, more successful, and happier coach. Drawing from his 40-year career as the world’s most trusted personal cycling and triathlon coach, Friel shares the lessons he learned about athlete performance, the athlete-coach relationship, mastering the business side—and how to make coaching more rewarding. 

Fast Talk Labs will host exclusive USA Cycling educational content, events, and video highlights from quarterly coaching summits. USA Cycling coaches gain access to networking events with experienced coaches, small group Q&A sessions with Joe Friel and other experts, and a coaches-only online Forum.

By this summer, coaches can earn USA Cycling recognized CEUs by completing Fast Talk Labs Pathways, a growing monthly series of deep explorations of specific endurance sports topics like interval training, performance data analysis, and sports nutrition.
