April 2018 School Holiday Programme Sessions

 

We’ve made a few adjustments to our School Holiday Programme to provide the kids with longer session times and the opportunity get in to the swing of things over a full week. This way they can not only learn the necessary skills but master those required to progress to the next level in their track riding.

Spaces are limited and booking is essential. Payment must be made prior to the start of the school holiday programme.

Please register at Avantidrome Reception via email reception@avantidrome.nz or phone (07) 823 1421.

 


All programmes include bike, helmet hire and an Avantidrome Coach.

A minimum of 5 riders is required to run each programme.

Please note: Children must be 135 m in height to ride the track at the Avantidrome.

 


 

Holiday Programme – Level 1

For those children who are not yet accredited riders, there will be a series of 1.5 hour or 2 hour accreditation classes in each week of the holidays (see below as session length and number of days differ in week 1 and 2).

These sessions are designed for children who are beginners on the velodrome and haven’t completed their accreditation. It caters for children who have never ridden the track before and are keen to be accredited.

It is recommended children attend each day throughout one week of this level 1 programme to build the necessary skills required to ride safely and competently on the velodrome.

Participation in these sessions does not automatically guarantee accreditation as this depends on the progress of the individual toward meeting the necessary requirements. If accreditation is achieved in Week 1 then they are able to attend Level 2 in the second week.

All you need to bring is shorts, tee shirt (no singlets please) and covered shoes. Wear cycling clothing if you have it.

 

Week 1: 1.5 hour sessions
