Coaching Opportunities

We cannot operate our program without our coaches, and with 2021 expected to see record numbers of kids across all of our programs, we need coaches at every level! From responsible adult volunteers to act as ride support for each of our programs (the only requirements here are that you enjoy riding your mountain bike and have knowledge of some of our local trails, and that you pass a short online Level 1 coaching certification to comply with our insurance needs), all the way through paid positions as Head Coaches for each of our programs, we want to hear from you so we can organize as many riding opportunities as possible for our kids starting in Spring 2021. If you have questions about coaching, please email sian@rideontnt.org, or fill out the coaching application form here.
