2013-2014 Coaching CEU Report


All USA Cycling certified coaches are required to continue their education during the course of their certification. They do this through an array of different ways; some “active” and others more “passive”. Active methods include writing articles or giving presentations. Passive methods might include watching approved webinars, or attending conferences and clinics. In order to quantify this process coaches earn continuing education units (CEUs) for their efforts. USA Cycling encourages their coaches to earn at least 40 CEUs every two years. Coaches who do not meet this requirement are penalized at the time of their certification renewal.


Coach Boynton has always been driven to continue his education and increase his knowledge in order to help his athletes perform the best they can. Whether it is being formally educated in a university setting, doing scientific research, or traveling around the country to attend and/or present at conferences and clinics, it’s all for the goal of increasing endurance athlete performance.


In the last two years Coach Boynton has earned 142 CEUs! That is 255% more than is required by USA Cycling! If you want to see what Jason has been learning about these past two years you can check out the report below.
