Your TIME is the most valuable to us: WE NEED COACHES!
This ENTIRE club/league is volunteer run! From Team Director to coaches. No one gets paid. That's part of the reason why this program is so amazing. It’s full of professional and dedicated adult volunteers who are passionate about bikes and getting #morekidsonbikes. We are always in desperate need for more adults to ride with these kids- especially middle school. Our league requires a minimum ratio of 6:1 riders/adult coach. Right now, we do not have enough adults to make this happen. We plan to ride Tues/Thurs afternoons 5-7 starting up the first week of July. If we do not have enough volunteers to run our rides safely, they do not happen. Adults/parents are allowed 1 “freebie” to ride with the kids with a signed waiver. After that, they must be registered as a level 1 coach. Getting to Level 1 is easy! It involves a couple of hours of online coursework that PitZone guides you through such as concussion, risk management and child abuse awareness. Parents, we need you to step up and ride with us. Know anyone who fits the bill as a coach? Send them our way!
