Spring is in the air! Oh wait…it’s still winter -_-

But our BSA Mountain Bike Program Development Training Course will be offered this Spring! 5-15-17 to 5-19-17

If your council offers any sort of mountain bike program, or is even looking to add one, this is DEFINITELY the course you want your instructors to attend. This spring we will be offering a two-course option in mountain program development training, where you will learn all the ins and outs of offering a safe and stellar mountain bike program!

Mountain biking can be an exciting addition to any camp program…but it can also present a host of risks and added costs. These two training opportunities will help you take the guess work out of MTB programming and give you the tools to develop, operate, and maintain an exciting, safe mountain bike program.

The first course offering focuses on vital strategies for successful mountain bike programs, including:

  • Program design
  • Facility construction and maintenance
  • Equipment selection
  • Fleet management
  • Program hazard analysis and risk management strategies

This course is suited to mountain bike program operators, camp directors, program directors, and others who develop and oversee program delivery.

The second course offering focuses on preparing the MTB staff member to deliver quality instruction to youth participants. Through the IMBA Level 1 Instructor certification, participants learn to teach fundamental mountain biking skills and manage guided mountain bike tours. (For more information about the IMBA Certification, see https://www.imba.com/icp).

This course is especially pertinent to staff or volunteers who deliver bike programs or who will train your local council camp staff in coaching techniques.
