APPROXIMATELY up to 50 new, young and eager riders will take part in Motorcycling Victoria’s first School Holiday Coaching Clinic for 2017 that will take place at Broadford’s State Motorcycle Sports Complex on Saturday, January 21.
Coach Glenn MacDonald will be on-hand to assist head coach Mark Willingham and others to teach children between the ages of 7-18-years-old – some who have never ridden before – the basic motorcycling skills and to basically have fun.
Glenn, who has been the longest-serving team Australia manager for the World Junior Motocross Championship, says he enjoys seeing riders of all ages improve.
“I really enjoy teaching riders to become better than what they are,” Glenn, who has 30 years of coaching experience, added. “I also really enjoy showing them how much fun the sport can be and making them aware of the safety aspects of the sport,” he added.
“I’m really looking forward to getting out there on Saturday, watch the participants ride, evaluate where they are at, and provide them with the necessary skills, that not only will they learn on the day, but that they will also take away with to practice and perfect,” Glenn said.
“Hopefully, with the excitement and enjoyment of learning new skills, we’ll see them attend even more School Holiday Coaching Clinics throughout the year,” Glenn continued.
“At the end of the day, watching riders become more confident in their skills is enough to put a big smile on my face,” Glenn added.
