Spring Holidays Afternoon MTB Clinic 6-12 Year Olds
This 6 - 12 years old holiday clinic is for those who enjoy mountain biking and want to develop their skills and have fun in the bush.
About this Event
In line with our very popular junior Sunday sessions, we are pleased to provide a kids school holiday clinic.
This clinic is for kids aged 6 - 12 years (only) who enjoy mountain biking and want to develop their skills, spend some time with like-minded active kids, go for a trail ride and have some fun!
What does the course cover?
The clinic starts with a fun skills session on the field. We then reinforce these skills when we put them into action on the trails. Kids will be guided through the trails taking breaks to highlight when, and how, to use skills specific on the obstacles encountered in the bush.
We will ride trails compatible with the skill level of the kids in attendance.
The session is for 3 hours and has a limited number of participants only so early registration is encouraged.
Who are the Coaches?
The coaches for this course will be Mark Watts and Nina Wright. Both coaches are MTBA NCAS qualified and have delivered programs for kids of all ages. Both Coaches hold blue cards, first aid qualifications and are experienced in Junior Coaching.
We invite you to read the reviews and see some video footage on our Facebook page by our previous participants and previous junior courses.
When can I book?
Event registration is available now. Event numbers are limited so we encourage you to sign up early to avoid missing out.
What age must participants be?
This course is for 6-12-year-olds (age at the time of the session). We group the kids at this level so they can ride as a compatible group on the trail together.
Where to meet on the day?
The meeting point will be at the MTB Skills Area on the top oval of Underwood Park off Underwood Road Priestdale. Upon arrival come see us to say hi and get your name ticked off on the roll.
What to bring to the event?
You will need a bike with working brakes, a helmet, food for morning tea, a spare tube the size of their wheel and a thirst for fun! Feel free to wear your gloves, sunglasses or whatever else you like wearing when riding your bike. Ensure the kids are wearing comfortable clothing that can account for a range on temperatures, have a drink bottle (preferably bike mounted and please ensure it is filled before you arrive) or camelback and something for them to eat when we break for morning tea. Something like a low sugar muesli bar and sandwich would be ideal to top up energy levels if required as 3 hours of bike fun takes a bit of energy.
