Program Outline

Gold Coast Mountain Bike Club will be running their progressive mountain bike coaching program for kids ages 5-14 years. Special consideration will be given to children outside these age brackets.  

During the first week, riders will be graded into groups based on ability.  Each week, each group will spend 40 minutes practicing a skill, then stop for a 10 minute break, then finish with a 40 minute ride to practice our new skill on trails.

Parents helpers are welcomed (even needed) during the sessions.  Parents are also invited to join us on the rides.

To participate you will purchase the Dirt Groms package from our GCMTB shop. You must purchase for the entire term which includes 4 sessions. One week before the first session we will send further details for registration.
