Junior School Holiday Motocross Coaching, at a track near you.

Hi all,
For many of you it's been a while, some I have not met before I hope to soon change that. On behalf of my primarly sponsor - Yamaha, I would like to offer my services for Junior School Holiday Motocross Coaching, at a track near you.
I have just returned from 1 months coaching in Europe, primarly focused on the NZ team attending the Junior World Championships in France. I know it is every kids dream to race motocross for a career, and where we were in Europe it was a reality with most of the top qualifiers being paid to race. I would like to share these experiences, and more to help your club/son's/daughters achieve their goals. I realise there is a void in professional coaching in the Southland/Otago region, with only Darryll King doing 1 clinic in Cromwell this school holidays. As the only professional coach based in the South Island it is my goal to begin regular coaching in the school holidays and/or mid-term, so that your rider's get their chance to be the best they can be.
For those that are not aware, I grew up in Queenstown and raced the Southern Series for many years as a junior before being sent to boarding school in Christchurch (which restricted my racing in Southland/Otago). Unfortunately I can't lay claim to any titles, but I did win various rounds and twice overall runner up to school friend and one of our more notable exports: Scotty Columb. I would later go on to become a Canterbury MX Champ, South Island rep at the North vs South, among various other achievements. I completed a Bachelor of Sports Coaching in 2006, and began my own business coaching professionally in 2007. This job has lead me to work with Yamaha & KTM in Australia, Team NZ in Taupo for last years World Champs, and this year as mentioned in Germany & France for the 2010 World Juniors. I offer the latest coaching technology to help keep our rider's on par with international standards.
Below is a synopsis of the coaching I would like to offer these school holidays:
  • Dates: Second week of the School Holidays (Tues 5th- Sat 09th October)
  • Venues Confirmed: Bells property, Winton. 
  • Venues Prospective: Invercargill, Balclutha, Dunedin 
  • Time: Day schools approx. 5hrs coaching 9am-3pm. (possibility to split into beginner AM, advanced PM if numbers permit)
  • Training would include silicon coach "Timewarp" video analysis (only MX coaching business to use this in NZ). 
  • 1v1 on track riding with Antony (YZ450F), using  audio headsets so that the rider can make instant on-track adjustments. Again this is a PMX point of difference that you won't experience at other coaching schools.
  • Assistance with bike set-up, training, nutrition & mental strategies to achieve your goals
  • Games to help dial in your riding skills while making the day a lot of fun
  • Cost would be approximately $150pp incl GST
Thanks for taking the time to look through my proposal. I hope this is something that encourages your support, and consequently look forward to hearing from you soon.
