Looking for a fun and FREE activity to keep the kids occupied on the final days of the school holidays? Well give them a skill for life by bringing them along to the MWCC kids training day at JJ Melbourne Hills Memorial Reserve, Terrey Hills this Saturday between 2-3pm. This training day is open to all children, you do not need to be a club member to attend.
Due to the success and demand from our last training day we will once again be running a free kids training day at Terrey Hills this Saturday, 26 April between 2-3pm. These days are operated by fully insured and accredited coaches and it is a great chance to give your children a skill for life. We have had a few questions about what level would be suitable for this event – if your child is on a balance bike – no problems we have coaching for them. Child is still on training wheels? We can work with them to improve their confidence and handling. My child is on a BMX or small mountain bike – great, we can work on cornering, balance and other general skills.
These days are open to all riders, parents and children do not have to be members of the club to participate.
The groups will be split up according to ability and will have a mixture of grass riding along with tarmac for the more skilled riders. By the end of it we hope that the children will be weaving around cones, feel more comfortable going around corners and having the confidence in their bikes and their ability when braking as well as going down hill. We may even introduce some cyclo cross skills into the day to get them ready for the upcoming season.
The session will go from 2pm until 3pm and while this won’t teach all the required skills for bike riding, we hope that this goes a little way in improving their skills and some may even want to start doing some juniors racing at the end of it.
At the end of the session we will also put on a bbq and drinks for the kids, so that they can refuel and learn the art of the coffee shop banter at the end of a ride.
Location: JJ Melbourne Hills Memorial Reserve, Terrey Hills
Date: 26 April 2013
Time: 2pm – 3pm
Who: This event would be suitable for all children who are able to ride a balance bike and up.
This event is open to all children, it is not restricted to club members children or members. All are welcome to attend.
If you would like to get your child doing some Saturday afternoon racing, then please see Dave Watkinson at the event who is looking to organise a few of our junior riders to partake in some of the Randwick Botany races that they run for their juniors. We will be able to organise transport to and from the races for your child. No doubt they will soon be winning more races than you. We will also have childrens races before all of our cyclo cross races this season.
