KIDS PROGRAM 2018

DFX Club

Whether riders are just starting out riding trails and have never been in the Bike Park to riders who are riding all levels of trails, jumping, dropping and shredding all over the valley and park. Coaches will choose trails appropriate to your child’s ability level to help them develop their technique, stamina and skills. Programs will work on developing skills on XC trails and DH skills in the Whistler Bike Park for all levels of riders. Amount of time spent in the Bike Park will depend on ability level with groups that are intermediate and above doing alternate days XC and DH.

TYPICAL DAY

  1. Meet from 8:45 to 9:15am, groups will leave to ride at 9:15am sharp - please be on time and ready to go. We will be riding either on the trails or in the Bike Park for most of the day. Sometime will be spent at parks and lakes especially on hotter days but as the groups progress the amount of time spent off the trails will decrease.
  • Beginner and Novice groups will mostly be riding XC building up to riding some days in the Bike Park, you child's coach will let you know when their group is ready.
  • Intermediate and up groups will ride XC on Mondays/Tuesdays and in the Bike Park on Wednesdays/Thursdays, unless your child's coach informs you differently, so please come with the appropriate bike and equipment (including a full face helmet). 
  1. Lunch will be at approximately 12:00pm back at Base or on the trails. Sometimes on longer 'expedition days' lunch may be taken with us or dropped off for us at a park or lake. Depending on the groups stamina breaks will be taken in the morning and afternoon as needed but the majority of the day will be on our bikes.
  2. Pickup is from 3:00pm to 3:30pm each child must be signed out by a parent. If your child will be picked up by someone else please inform the coach in the morning. If you would like your child to sign out by themselves please ask your child's coach for a sign out permission form.
 
We will be riding in all weather, so please make sure your child is prepared with rain gear and sunscreen!
