Event description

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 and when are the sessions?

Based on the positive feedback (from both parents and juniors) of previous terms, we will contintue 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! We take the kids whilst the parents head their own way (which for some is to a local coffee shop also :). 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 the below into your diary in advance).

Term Schedule:

Session 1 - 21/7 7:00am - 9:00am - Underwood Park Skills Park, Priestdale

Session 2 - 28/7 7:00am - 9:00am - Nerang (Perfect time for those participating in National Schools Championships to get a course practice in)

Session 3 - 4/8 7:00am - 9:00am - Daisy Hill Forest North (Underwood Park side). Note this is National Schools Championship weekend and the Marks will split this weekend to provide a session for those not in the Schools Champs and support at the race event to those whom are.

Session 4 - 11/8 7:00am - 9:00am - Bayview

Session 5 - 18/8 7:00am - 9:00am - Scribbly Gums

25/8 - Week off for all Juniors to support any Mums in chicks in the sticks!

Session 6 - 1/9 7:00am - 9:00am - Cornubia

Session 7 - 8/9 7:30am - 9:30am - Hiddenvale ("The Epic" practise session!!) ((The Epic is on the following week 14-15/9)


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 form in the sessions and aid in the motivation to want to ride in the group each week. We 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 assesed in the first session 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. New riders found to be unsuitable for this group can either be moved to the Shredders sessions or refunded. More details in relation to these options are available upon request.
