Frazier Cycling Skills Assessment

We measure and track each youth cyclist’s competency by our skills assessment.  

The Skills Assessment has an associated Competency Score.  Each skill is assigned a value: Level 1 Skills are one point, Level 2 Skills are two points, and Level 3 Skills are three points.  There are 32 skills that are tested and scored.  To receive the point value for the skill, the individual must complete the skill to the satisfaction of the coaches.  The Competency Score is the sum total of all completed skills.

The Skills Assessment results have shown that youth cyclists (at all ages and levels) improve competency with continued skills practices throughout the year; otherwise, there is a significant competency plateau.  The Skills Assessment results have shown that an improvement in an individual’s Competency Score has a direct relationship to improved cycling abilities:

•           Handling, balance, and control

•           Hill-climbing

•           Time trialing

•           Stamina

•           Descending

•           Sprinting

•           Cornering

The data is useful in determining competency norms for ages, gender, training years.  From this data we can infer what is actually taking place developmentally with our youth cyclists.
