LEARN THE SKILLS TO TEACH THE SKILLS.
At OTBS clinics, coaches learn the progressive steps needed to teach anyone both basic and advanced mountain biking skills. Coaches also learn about experiential teaching techniques, how to accommodate different learning styles, and how to create a positive learning environment for young riders. Please bring your bike and appropriate riding gear for the weather. Taught by NICA Certified Skills Trainers.
