Event description


The Junior Weekly Hit Out (JWHO) 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 weekly basis.

The target age group is 12-17 year olds however it is rider skill and speed on the trails we are trying to match within the group to provide all participants a positive experience.

Where are the sessions?

Based on the positive feedback (from both parents and juniors) of last term, we will contiintue to mix up the locations this term and they will be as per the schedule below. (The parents of past Junior hitout participants have found it a great way to get some trail time themselves!) Reminder emails will be sent each week that a session is on with further details of where to meet etc (however we recommend you put these into your diary in advance)

When are the sessions?

Sessions are all Sunday Mornings 7-9am as per the schedule below:

What is the session content?

The sessions will be broken up into skills and fitness development with session 1 being a formal skills coaching session. Fitness is driven through trail riding with a focus on locations that allow the participants to apply the skills taught and further build fitness.

We find that good friendships also form in the sessions and aid in the motivation to want to ride in the group each week. We also place the juniors into groups of similar speed on the trails so motivation is also there to move up within the groups should they develop skills and fitness at a faster rate than others.

New members to the term's coaching will be asked to ride a trial day on 24/6 7-9am to ensure their speed and capability on the trail is compatible with the rest of the group. This is in the best interest of everyone to ensure we dont put the new junior rider at risk of an incident from riding a trail that is beyond their capibiity, and to ensure their speed is compatible with the group.

Who are the Coaches?

The Coaches for this course will be the "The Marks" from Mountain Bike Coaching Brisbane. All Coaches are MTBA NCAS qualified and have delivered programs such as SheRides for Cycling Australia, the Junior Development Squad for National Mtb rounds for MTBA and held positions including National Coach for The Australian Team assult on the CX World Championships in 2017 and 2018.
