After school Coaching program

8-16 years | Starting September 12th 2022

6 weeks | 6 sessions

4:00-6:15pm each week

Keep the progression flowing as we roll into fall with our Fall MTB Club.

With cooler temperatures and all-time conditions, fall is one of the best times to ride and improve when you feel the most comfortable on your bike after a summer of shredding.
During these six weeks, we work through the 6-skills of mountain biking, using a mixture of fun, skill development drills and trail riding to develop technical proficiency. While also working hard to teach our philosophy of teamwork, growth mindset, resilience and humility.

This multi-week program gives them an excellent opportunity to learn as we can leave them with something to practice in between sessions each week. Working with them over six weeks helps to maximize the progression.
Ultimately we aim to help them build on their biking skills while gaining the tools to succeed in life!
