This coaching is for riders targeting u13, u15, u17 and u19 racing.

Times: Wednesday 4:00pm – 5.30pm
Cost: $220 for the 2 terms.
If the weather is perfect we will run 15 weekly sessions. On occasion, coaching may be included into a race weekend away where riders will be coached around a track prior to racing.
If there is poor weather we will either move coaching to an undercover venue at Hunter Christian School or cancel the session. Riders must purchase a Hunter Schools MTB Team jersey to wear at coaching and racing if they don’t already have one. This is an essential part of our risk assessment. This is an additional cost of $90 which must be selected during the registration process. This price is heavily reduced through generous sponsors.

Requirements:
Riders must be mechanically independent or working towards this goal. That means they can change their own tyre etc.
They must also be willing to train outside of our coaching time to develop a reasonable level of fitness.

Skill Focus:

Loose surface / off-camber cornering
Loose surface braking
Loose surface climbing
Loose surface descending
Front-wheel lift (advanced)
Rear-wheel lift
Bunnyhop
Trackstand

Support provided

Riders who are in the team will be provided with the following opportunities:

Riders will need to supply a Auscycling licence that is valid for the coaching sessions or will need to have a signed waiver. This is available by clicking here.

Registration is available via email enquiry and trial. Race Team riders can upgrade from the skill development squads after assessment.

Obligations
