The team at Dynamic Motivation has extensive experience teaching kids to ride and delivering Junior MTB programs. We have a low participant to coach ratio (maximum 8:1) for safety and quality of coaching. It’s a great small group atmosphere where all the kids can get to know each other whilst they are learning cool new stuff. With the younger kids we often run around 6:1 as they need extra supervision. Others seem to think 10:1 is a good service we don't believe this is safe...
We have been running Junior programs for over 10 years making us by far the most experienced in the industry. This isn't just a couple of camps each year it is weekly programs, school holiday programs and live in camps. There is no organisation in the industry with close to our experience, longevity or results. During this time we have improved the skills of hundreds of kids and progressed those that were interested through to national level racers.
Most current research shows the best way to develop young riders is to focus on their skills and ensure they are in a fun environment to keep them interested and developing. There is no need and little benefit in complicated training plans with lots of miles as this is more likely to burn kids out and has little evidence it produces long term results. We are happy to train kids to improve and enjoy their riding without needing to be competitive but can also help if they are keen on racing. We have a proven ability to long term develop national class riders while still keeping it fun and avoiding burnout.
We are the only organisation in Australia that provides a proven comprehensive program that takes kids from 5-6 years old and can offer a full pathway through development of riding through to racing and on to becoming an instructor for us and potentially a spot in our professional sponsored team.
We keep our prices the most affordable in the industry as we are trying to provide a long term activity for kids not just cashing in on a day program during the holidays or selling a one of course. By making the program affordable its way easier for families to become involved in the long term junior ride community we have created.
Our programs are:
