We are proud to be able to announce the first full season of the Adelaide Dirt League (ADL)! The ADL is a weekend mountain bike program that offers modified versions of popular off road disciplines as well as challenges, games and activities for riders aged 8 – 13 years. This program is a fantastic alternative to mainstream weekend sports, giving kids an opportunity to regularly participate in a sport that they truly resonate with.
The Adelaide Dirt League runs through the second and third school terms and is comprised of 20 weekly sessions held in various locations around Adelaide. It incorporates all disciplines of mountain biking and exposes participants to the fantastic diversity that the sport encompasses. The program is adapted specifically for each age group to enable us to meet the specific needs of maturing young people.
Under 10 Program
The Under 10 program emphasises the acquisition of skills and experience. Our coaches will deliver basic skills instruction before leading the group on guided rides and playing skills-based games. The primary focus is on having fun and enjoying the sport safely.
Under 13 Program
The Under 13 program will challenge riders to display good bike handling, control and enable them to track their progression over time. Riders will participate in a variety of measured challenges and will have the opportunity to better their own score throughout the program.
The Under 13 program also aims to prepare riders for various competitions offered by clubs in Adelaide such as the Adelaide Mountain Bike Club, Gravity Enduro SA and Inside Line. It will focus on developing participants’ awareness of setting process goals and the importance of having a growth mindset. Riders who would also like to develop their practical bike handling skills are encouraged to also attend our After School Skills Program which is designed to complement the Adelaide Dirt League.
