Dates:

We start on the 2nd week of each school term.

Cost: $220 for at least 14 sessions over the 2 school terms. If the weather is perfect we will run 16+ sessions. In the event of poor weather, we will 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 mtb jersey. There are a few long sleeve jerseys on offer. These can be selected during the registration process. 

GIRLS SPECIAL - During 2024 girls will get half price coaching and free coaching if they have a brother who has signed up for the program. Please send Jason an email for a discount code: jasonaenglish@gmail.com

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
Braking – back vs front brakes
Ratching and slow bike control
Ready position
Riding out of the seat

The focus for the developing riders will be:

Downhill cornering

Ratcheting / slow bike control

Weight Transfer
Climbing

Cornering – starting to look and lean (berms and flat)

As there is such demand for Gravity Enduro focused coaching we have 3 dedicated coaches to focus on this need.
