Event description

Description

The Junior shredders sessions have been created for junior riders to ride together with other junior riders of similar capability under the guidance of experienced coaches on a regular basis. We often see an increase in both skills and fitness over the term and this group always has a good time embracing the great outdoors. This term will see 4 sessions all held in different locations.

To help you decide if this group is for your junior, this group was primarily 8-12 year olds previously as a guide however may have some slightly older kids of lower fitness starting out in the sport in this group also. Our aim is to have similar abilities within the group. Having two coaches will allow us to further split the group into two if required to ensure compatible ability within each group.

What is the session content?

The first session will be skills based to ensure all riders new to the group are capable and confident on the trails. The juniors that have shredded with us before and have developed trail skills may be taken on a trail ride if that is their preference as we have two coaches so can split the group.

Session 1 is in Underwood Park at the skills park. Remaining sessions will be trail rides designed to build fitness, allowing riders to apply their mtb skills in a safe environment and mix with other like minded kids. See the schedule below for the locations for each week.

We note we have progressions to higher level courses for the Shredders to progress to over time. These higher level courses (Junior weekly hitout squad JWHO) are primarily made up of 12 -17 year old riders with a few exceptions for young developed riders. JWHO ride more often and for longer durations however if you have a junior that you feel may be suitable for these higher levels, talk to us about a trial. These sessions have a higher term cost associated also due to the more frequent and longer sessions.
