Advanced MTB Development program
9-15 years | July & August 2023
9 weeks | 18 sessions
We are very excited to introduce The Academy. An advanced, progressive MTB program aimed at long term athlete development for mountain bikers. We provide the knowledge, skills and conditions needed to reach the top.
Our methods aim to grow performance, cultivate passion, and build intrinsic motivation in a fun, safe environment, where talent can grow without pressure or risk of burnout. Helping young athletes carve their own path, the way they want. Our goal is to develop mountain bike skills, athletic performance, and the personal growth necessary to succeed in both sports and personal life endeavours.
Although this program is geared towards performance, fun is the number one ingredient. We believe this is the key to long term involvement in the sport, and is a priority of any SMBA program.
With 18 sessions over 9 weeks, students have the opportunity to truly grow and develop their bike skills.
We utilize the latest coaching methods and technology during our weekly coaching sessions to create a progressive program geared to ensuring sustainable long term athlete development. SMBA works hard to create a team culture while instilling our core values of perseverance, hard work, resilience, and humility.
