Coaches will learn the progressive steps needed to teach both basic and advanced mountain biking skills, experiential teaching techniques, how to accommodate different learning styles and how to create a positive learning environment for young riders. Taught by NICA-certified skills trainers. Required for NICA coach license Level 2 and Level 3.
This course will be completed in 2 phases:
1. Online via NICA Education (45min) Please complete the online “OTB 101 Classroom” course accessed through Pit Zone “Access Coach Courses” prior to taking this in-person training.
2. In-Person Field Class (3 hour outdoor course that includes a Field Guide)
You must complete both to receive full credit for Level 2 or 3 Certification. If you are just attending for CEUs you do not need to repeat the online OTB 101 Classroom.
Please dress appropriately for the weather. This is a skills instructional course and not a “ride”, you will be standing as a group for instruction and riding for the skills portion.
What to Bring:
Well-maintained Mountain Bike
Flat-pedals and Shoes if possible
Extra Layer and Jacket
Gloves and Sunglasses
Snacks and Water
Face Covering if social distancing cannot be maintained
