Base Skills - Mountain Bike Coaching - 2 Session Course Term 4
This two session course will show you the base skills of the sport, then take you on the trails to apply them.
About this Event
This two session course is to provide base skills for those new to the sport or new to the idea of obtaining formal skills instruction.
Base skills are those that form the base of knowledge and ability to ride typical mountain bike trails safely and with less effort. Riders with more skill that can ride with more efficiency will be motivated to ride more often, have fewer injuries and obtain greater confidence leading to increased enjoyment from participating in the sport.
Skills covered include weight distribution, cornering, braking and crossing obstacles. These skills are important to develop correctly as they from the base for further correct technical progress of additional skills there after. The sessions will start on flat grassy oval and progress to apply the skills on the trails by the end of the course.
The session times are as follows:
Session 1 - 15th November Sunday 3:00 - 5:00pm
Session 2 - 22nd November Sunday 3:00 - 5:00pm
There will be two Mountain Bike Australia (MTBA) Level 1 qualified coaches on the day whom are experienced in both group and individual sessions.
