JAFAKIDS

JafBanner2014

The JAFAKIDS Junior MTB Academy focuses on developing mountain bike riders aged between 11-19 years, beginner or expert, boys and girls, within the greater Auckland region.

Specifically, it’s about cross-country (XC) trail riding, learning to ride the natural obstacles you find on single track and getting fit to enjoy the kilometres of trail networks in our region. In doing so the focus is on fun, skills and fitness training.

The JAFAKIDS are coached on a weekly basis throughout the year by our Head Coach and a crew of volunteer coaches. Previous Head Coach Sadie Parker-Wynyard remains involved.

Rides are held on Wednesdays in Woodhill or Riverhead forests,  in groups on a variable calendar.

There are three riding groups, each aimed at different development levels and an appropriate balance of fun, skills development and racing.

JAFAKIDS was originally set up under the Auckland MTB Club.  In September 2010, it affiliated with the Department of Cycling.

The next muster ride will be in October 16th 2016 at Woodhill. Contact Sarah via email info@jafakids.com if you would like to join before then.
