NCC partners with the Northampton Parks & Recreation Department to run 5 sessions for youth in grades 2 through 8. Want to ride with the kids? We need volunteers to help out each evening. Volunteers get credit for racer rewards. You do not need to commit to all of the sessions. Contact Tom Hoogendyk if you are interested.

Our series sponsors are listed above, including Northampton Area Pediatrics, whom has been the presenting sponsor for the last ten years! We are gracious for all of the sponsor’s continued support.

Riders will focus on:
• Riding safely in a group,
• Bunny-hopping obstacles,
• Riding through sand,
• Sprinting and braking,
• Dismounting and remounting on-the-go,

Dates: Mondays, April 24, May 1, May 8, May 15, May 22 + rain dates thereafter as needed
Time: 5:30-6:45pm, but plan to arrive about 15 minutes before
Location: Dow Pavilion at Look Park
We start setting up at 4:30pm if you want to help. We break into groups and start at 5:30pm.
