Youth Female Specific
Young female athletes are less likely to stick with athletics as they progress in life due to social stigma and peer pressure. At Sedona Mountain Bike Academy, we actively counter this statistic by being on the forefront of positive change and investing in our youth female programming. We prioritize the powerful impact of mentorship for young female mountain bikers by not only offering high quality instruction of technique, but a healthy example of a strong female. Our certified female coaches see mountain biking as both a physical outlet and a effective catalyst to increase confidence which applies to all areas of life.
Now more than ever, young women have role models to pursue outdoor athletics. In 2018, American Kate Courtney won the UCI World Championship in her first year of racing at the professional level. Projections show mountain biking will continue to expand as the younger generations of riders age into adulthood. Mountain biking is a lifelong sport, offering an avenue for empowerment beyond the years of team sports. Be reassured that that you give a long-lasting gift of mountain biking to your daughter, sister, or friend through a SMBA clinic or lesson.Youth female private lessons and female group rates will remain the same as our standard youth rates. Please request a female instructor upon booking to insure availability.
