2019 Sprockids a definite success!

Coach Leader Greg Sowak reflects on this year’s Sprockids …

Although the trails were still a little soggy from the recent rains, the sun was out and the kids and coaches were all smiles on June 22 - the final day of Sprockids Spring Session 2019!

By all accounts, and despite a couple of weather and smoke-related cancellations, the 2019 Sprockids program was once again a resounding success. This year, nearly 100 Sprockids - riders between the ages of 8 and 11 - took to the trails of Edmonton with our crew of highly skilled and intrepid mountain-bike coaches.

The kids learned the basics of group riding, trail etiquette, safety and preparedness, along with a host of new skills. By the final Saturday of this 8 week, 20 hour program, ALL of the Sprockids were "sending it" off the edge of the Argyll bowl with speed and confidence!
