The coaching focuses on fun, safe progressions, teaching the kids how to respect limits, build their own confidence and safety awareness, while encouraging their peers.

KIDS SHRED PROGRAM OKANAGAN

The ZEP Kids Shred program includes four mornings of coaching, one day per week, from 9am - 12pm.

This program is best suited for kids who already mountain bike confidently and are comfortable on green and blue technical and flow mountain bike trails, as a minimum.

Coaching will take place on the awesome Crawford Trails (Myra-Bellevue Provincial Park) to provide the ultimate environment for safe progression and good times! If you can ride it on two wheels, we’ll be there! Sessions will also include suspension set up and bike set up tips to get their bikes dialled.

Safety, fun and learning for the kids is our priority (in that order). Groups take regular rests to ensure physical and mental well-being, and ensure the kids finish each day pumped on their ZEP Bike Camp!

ZEP Coaches always maximize sessions for safety, risk management and skill progression, so kids can build the skills without the spills.
