About this Event
On-the-Bike Skills 101: Coaches 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 coach license Level 2 and Level 3.
This course will be completed in 2 phase: Online via NICA Pitzone (3 hours) and In-Person for 3 hours at Sierra Vista Bike Park in Reno, NV. You must complete both for full credit, preferably online prior to the In-Person Course. WORKING MOUNTAIN BIKES AND HELMETS ARE REQUIRED. Dress appropriately, this is an instructional course and not a “ride”. Masks are required and we will practice proper Social Distancing. Bring your own food and water, there is a porta pottie available.
Once you complete OTB 101 you are not required to complete it again, however you will receive CEU’s towards your current license status.
