Cost: $220 for at least 14 sessions over the 2 school terms. If the weather is perfect we will run up to 16 sessions. In the event of poor weather, we will either move coaching to an undercover venue at Hunter Christian School or cancel the session. If more than 2 sessions are cancelled due to wet weather etc, catch up sessions will be offered.
Riders must have a Hunter Schools MTB coaching jersey or shirt to wear at coaching if they don’t already have one. This is an essential part of our risk assessment. This is an additional cost of $50 for a coaching t-shirt or $70 – $80 for a mtb jersey. These can be selected during the registration process. 

As coaches are qualified Auscycling coaches, riders will be fully insured for coaching if they have a valid Auscyling Membership. 

In order to sign up for skills coaching, a rider must be able to:
– Stop the bike safely with control
– Mount the bike and start unassisted
– Be aware of other riders and avoid collisions
– Communicate clearly with coaches and others
* Parents will need to stay with their children for the session if these requirements cant be demonstrated.
Within the coaching sessions, riders will be split into 1 of 5 groups. 

The focus of our beginner groups will be:
Cornering – pedal position and vision
