The Junior Dirt Skills Program is a joint initiative of the Port Adelaide Cycling Club and the Adelaide Mountain Bike Club.

 Our main aim is teach children the skills and etiquette to increase their competence, confidence, and enjoyment of riding bikes in natural and off-road environments.

 The classes cater for girls and boys aged from 4 to 16 years and is tailored and structured to suit their various abilities.

 MTBA trained Level 0 coaches (and other qualified coaches) will deliver the clinics with assistance from some parents/guardians. Coaches will have all the necessary qualifications to deliver this level of coaching. For details, visit:
