About the Course

Introducing our dynamic youth mountain bike programs, specially crafted to ignite a passion for biking while honing essential skills, boosting confidence, and ensuring an exhilarating experience on the trails! Our expert instructors engage young bikers in a comprehensive journey of skill-building both on and off the trail. Through drills, stunts, and jumps, they'll unleash their potential and then receive on-trail coaching to apply these newfound skills across various terrains and features.

Our comprehensive curriculum emphasizes critical aspects such as body positioning, masterful gear usage, precision braking, flawless cornering, strategic line selection, heightened trail awareness, and fostering safe riding habits. As they delve into a mix of exciting games and engaging drills on green trails, the real focus is to make them feel at home on our local blue trails, providing them with a new level of comfort and confidence.

Wondering if this level aligns perfectly with your young rider's abilities? If they can already handle green trails with ease and venture onto easy blue single tracks occasionally, then this is the ideal fit! Their confidence in conquering bumpy, rooty sections on green trails while maintaining a poised pedal-ready position, along with their impressive front and back brake control, sets the stage for an incredible journey of growth and achievement on the trails!

With over 15 years of experience coaching youth programs in the Kootenays, and a coaching team with a lot of experience under their belts, we guarantee that our program will elevate their skills, confidence, and passion for the sport to a whole new level!
