Kids MTB Programs


Thredbo MTB prides itself in delivering premium development skills programs for kids ages 7-14 years. Led by some of Australia’s best PMBIA (Professional Mountain Bike Instructor Association) qualified instructors, these programs are designed to develop kids skills in the gravity side of mountain biking.

If you’re visiting Thredbo for more than a week in December or January, our School Holiday MTB Camps are designed for quick progression across all trails in the Thredbo Mountain Bike Park.

Our MTB Development Squad forms part of the pathway to competing at a regional, state or national level where we provide in depth feedback on the riders’ talent and skill. Bookings open soon.

School Holiday Camps

Thumbnail

Overview

School Holiday MTB Camps are a great way for kids to develop their gravity skills in the Thredbo Mountain Bike Park. Catering for kids aged 7 – 14 years, students will work on mountain biking fundamentals, gravity specific riding techniques, pump track skills, plus some valuable bike setup and maintenance workshops.

Your child will be allocated to a small class (maximum 5 per class) with a dedicated instructor to maximise progression and riding time. On the last day, we’ll send them home with a report card outlining their areas of improvement.

  • Intermediate: The intermediate clinic utilises the gravity trails within the MTB Park. The group will work on skills to ride safely including correct body position, heavy braking, cornering, small jumps and drops. This clinic will predominantly be held on the intermediate gravity trails with the aim of riding the Cannonball Downhill by the last day of the program.
  • Advanced: The advanced clinic will utilise all trails in the MTB Park giving riders insight into correct line choices, aggressive riding positions and dynamic cornering. The group will also utilise the jump parks to improve their jumping and drop skills. This is ideal for riders who are looking at getting into competitive downhill mountain biking.
