Elementary Club: Fall 3-week Skills Progression

For Ages 8 – 12

A 3-week Progression

Fall Structure: Important – Riders may only sign up for a single session, one day per week

  • In order to maximize participation in our small groups this fall, we can only allow elementary riders to participate one day a week for three weeks this fall.
  • Choose session 1 or 2, but not both.
  • We are offering a 3-week progression to help riders improve body position, riding skills and practice maneuvers so we expect riders to attend all three practices.
  • Our goal is to have a stable group of riders with the same coaches each week to maximize improvement.
  • Practices will be offered Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays after school.
  • We’re also adding an Elementary 3-Day Camp the last week of October, if weather permits, more details below.

For Ages 8 – 12

Intermediate Youth 3-day Camp

NEW for Fall 2021

Other Suggestions for Teams:

  • Join us for weekend rides and optional trips

Weather Disclaimer: We ride in all weather except lightning storms. If there is any concern about the conditions we will contact you at the email or phone number listed, otherwise plan on riding and come prepared.

  • What group will I be in? Our goal is to make riders happy and keep everyone safe so groups and ride plans may change at any time during practice. While we can sometimes take feedback from riders, sometimes we all do the same plan or coaches will have specific plans for individuals or their groups. Communicate any special needs, goals or ideas to the coaches or email / call us to discuss.
  • Can parents ride along? We make specific invites when it’s appropriate for parents to join us for special rides. If you’re interested in volunteering as a helper, or becoming a paid coach we would love to get your involved with our trainings: email / call us to discuss.
  • Make-up days? Typically not available, but sometimes it’s possible for Team Riders if we have enough capacity on other days. Please speak with your coach at practice or email / call us to discuss.
  • Can I try it before I sign up? In most cases, yes, we allow riders to try the program or attend a skills clinic / info session.
  • What about refunds? Deposits, attended rides, and no-shows are not refundable. Please read our Cancellation Policy.
  • Do you rent bikes? Not really for youth programs… Riders should come to practice with their own bike in working order. In some cases we might have an extra bike available for emergencies but our bikes are typically reserved for guests on tour who need a one-day rental.

Team Clothing & Uniforms

Totally optional for these riders. All jerseys / bibs other team uniforms will be made available for purchase separately.
