Sessions, Dates, and Times:

We will be offering a 3-day clinic (evening sessions)  and a 4-day clinic (2 morning sessions and 1 evening session). Each clinic will offer 90-minute classes.  Please see dates and times below.

Beginner Skills requirement

: Students who can ride a two-wheel bike and are excited to learn the fundamental skills for mountain biking.  We will work on body composition, brake control, and terrain awareness.

Intermediate Skills requirement:

Student is comfortable biking on dirt trails. Has endurance to ride trails, with climbing for up to one hour. Student is motivated to expand mountain bike skills. 

Important Information:

**We build on the skills the students learn throughout the week.  It's VERY important that your child attend the first and second day since we work on skills that will keep them safe on their bikes. 

**We will be leaving the parking lot 5 minutes after start time every day.  Your child should show up and be ready to ride on time.  We use the additional 5 minutes for bike safety checks.

**If your student took the beginner clinic last year, the intermediate level would be a great follow-up clinic. For information on which class would be best for your child, please contact Mountain Bike instructor: Jamie Bangerter, 801-661-8338.
