MN Leaders' Summit 201 - Returning Coaches

Intermediate Mountain Biking Youth Coaching

 Sat May 5 - Sun May 6, 2018


The primary goal for the 2018 Leaders' Summit 201 is to provide continued training for people who have completed a Leaders’ Summit and MTB 101 or OTBS 101 in the past.  Returning coaches, assistant coaches or ride leaders who are interested in fulfilling their NICA requirements, or are ready to upgrade to a higher level of training, should attend this event.

- Completion of the 1-day summit completes 5 of the 9 CEU’s required over a 3 year period.
- Complete part of the NICA Coach Level 2 and 3 requirements.
- Complete the NICA Leader Summit 1 Day requirement - part of the NICA Coach Level 3 requirements.

In addition to offering coaching instruction, attendees will also learn more about:

  • Stretching and Strength Training for young mountain bikers
  • Nutrition for young athletes
  • Goal Setting and Coach Evaluations to develop strong teams
  • Coaching Scenarios and Finding your Coach Philosophy: Small Group Discussions
  • On the Bike Skills (OTBS) 201 Training. 

This second skills clinic offers more advanced skills and progressions of the fundamentals which were taught in OTBS 101. These skills will offer you tools for working with your more riders and offering the next level of skills instruction.  

Prerequisites for OTBS 201:
- Completion of  either MTB 101 or OTBS 101
- Attendance at  the new coaches or returning coaches’ leaders' summits

OTBS 201 Attendees will need to bring their own bike and helmet.
