Kids Shredding Singletrack (AKA Youth Mountain Bike Skills clinic)

Update: Hello everyone, due to personal schedules for coaches, we need to change the KSS night from Tuesday to Wednesday.  I hope that everyone who has expressed interest can still make it on Wednesdays.  I’m sorry about changing this so late, but we need our volunteers to run a fun and safe clinic for the riders.  

 

Kids Shredding Singletrack (KSS) is about to start our fall season. 
KSS is a weekly mountain bike skills clinic for 11 to 16 year old youth.

When: Wednesday September 11 –  October 16th (6 weeks), 6:30-8:30pm

Where: Kinsmen Park/Hiawatha (behind the ice cream shop)

A typical session will include a brief discussion and demonstration of a skill or technique, then we will divide into groups to ride the trails.  We will stop at features where they can practice and develop their skills.  The focus will be on fun, but there will also be some learning going on!

Parents are welcome to ride along and, depending on the number of participants, might be asked to perform a “sweeper” role, trailing one of the groups and assisting the instructor/leader as needed.

To participate, your child will need to:

  • be a member of the Sault Cycling Club ($15 for youths, $70 for a family membership), register here: Join our Club
  • have access to a mountain bike in good repair and
  • wear a helmet.

Kids will need to be fit and motivated enough to ride between 6 and 10 km of single track trail in an outing.

The focus will be on introducing the kids to fun and safe mountain biking.  The environment will be non-competitive and kids won’t be pressured to try any skill outside their comfort zone.  

If you are interested in having your child participate, please complete the KSS Registration Form and the KSS Bike Check Form (yes we need both forms, even if you are a returning KSSer).   Send these to Peter@SaultCyclingClub.ca by September 4, 2019.

Sean, Andre and I can hardly wait for our weekly rides!
