Kids Club curacao

Training

Group Division
We train with five different groups. Group 5 focuses on how to use the mountain bike in different situations in a playful manner.  Besides the elements of play and the cycling technique the sporty performance becomes more important in group 3 and 4. The children from these groups do often participate in competitions. The groups 1 and 2 are even more focused on races so there is more attention to condition, performance and competition.
The Group Division is, however, no hard format. It depents on what the child is able to and wants to. FUN is always the main issue.
