All 4th Category riders must attend 2 Novice Racers Coaching Days before they are allowed to ride in any Surrey League or SERRL events.  This system was introduced by the Surrey League in 2015 and it has proven to be extremely successful in improving riders skills, knowledge, bike handling, confidence and expertise.

If you have already attended two Surrey League Coaching Days then they will be accepted by the SERRL so you don't need to repeat this process.  If you have already attended just one session then you will need to attend a second, with either league.
