You’ll learn the NICA-endorsed training method, which includes the progressive steps needed to teach anyone (even yourself) both basic and advanced mountain biking skills. You will also learn about experiential teaching techniques, how to accommodate different learning styles, and how to create a positive learning environment for young riders. This clinic will be held outdoors, so please bring your bike and appropriate riding and safety gear for the weather.
On-the-Bike Skills 101 (a Level 2-3 Coach requirement) teaches coaches how to teach fundamental mountain bike skills.
OTB 101 has an additional online component. To receive full credit, you must complete the online portion through your Pit Zone account.
Coaches that have previously attended/completed OTB 101 are able to purchase a ticket and attend the training as a refresher. CEU’s will be awarded to those Coaches.
We will be holding class at the group camping site in Dead Horse Ranch where Coaches Camp is taking place.
**In order to offer the class we must have 5 people signed up by Monday, October 30th to proceed, so please spread the word and bring your friends.
