What is Sprockids?
Sprockids is an instructional program designed to engage young people, ages 6 to 12 years old, in mountain biking.
Cycling provides a positive focus for youth, develops self-esteem, provides kids with a strong sense of community, and introduces them to a healthy active lifestyle. The program teaches off-road skills through drills, games, and fun activities; while tracking individual progress.
The program will run every Monday starting April 25th 2022 and ending Monday June 13th 2022. We will operate the riding sessions in a similar format to last year, using 4 different start times(from 4pm to 6pm) and 3 different start locations in Kal Park. As well we will be following all provincial health guidelines that may be in place at the time. As we did last year, we will do our best to keep your kids in the same time slot to help with pickup and drop off!
