Skills Academy 11 + Purposeful Practice – BRISTOL

Please only book children onto this course for whom you are the legal guardian: Due to the need to have all information and T&Cs signed off electronically from the child’s legal guardian you can only book your own child/children onto a course. You can book siblings in one booking but please make sure all information for all siblings is on the form.  If there are any medical conditions or injuries please make it clear which child is affected.

What is it? This is a ride and practice session for 11 + year olds who have completed at least 2 sessions (must include a Core Skills unit) and want to put their skills into practice. We will ride approximately 7-10 miles stopping to session specific sections for the young people to practice and receive coaching feedback.

Is it suitable for my child? 

– Your child must have completed at least 2  Skills Academy coaching sessions, one of which is the Core Skills unit.

– They should be able to confidently ride 7-10 miles off road in 2 hours and have experience of riding blue and red graded single track trails.

– They should understand the core technique of a good ready position and be able to put this into practice on descents. If they are not consistently standing up with level pedals on descents they should give Core Skills another go.

– They should be passionate and enthusiastic about developing their skills.

What will they need? A well maintained mountain bike with knobbly tyres, gears and minimum 24″ wheel. A well fitting helmet, gloves and appropriate clothing for the conditions on the day (more details on this will be provided in session information pack after booking). We would recommend wearing the body armour that they are used to wearing when going out for a ride. We will be spend the majority of the session riding on the trail, we will mitigate wherever possible but risk of injury is higher than a standard coaching session.

Can I hire a bike? Yes, we have Whyte and Islabikes  for hire. Please book ahead. These will be an additional cost. Use code COACHING20 at the bike hire checkout to receive a discount when hiring a bike for a coaching session.
