2014 Riding Coach Search

Recommended Posts

Here is the process to apply to be a coach:


1. Read the description below the dotted line for an overview of what we are looking for.

2. A very good riding skill level is required from our coaches. Some have met the other requirements, but had to work on their riding skill, and eventually became coaches. While riding skill is important, as or more important is ability to learn, ability to communicate and get along well with a wide variety of people, can endure hard conditions (school days are long!), and can attend enough school days in a year.

3. Please review the description and application carefully. The schedule needs to be filled out with your best estimate, try and answer for every date.

4. If you fit the description, or think you could meet the requirements soon, fill out the application that is attached and send it to me. In truth, I'd rather have you try out and let us decide if you meet the requirements, than not have you try out at all!








1. Racing experience is preferred. Really we have to see the riding to

answer if the riding skill level will be adequate. Most of our students are

street riders, but we do need someone that can set an excellent example for a

broad range of skills.


2. Friendly, personable, upbeat, high ethical standards, fit in with the

rest of our team is a must.


3. Excellent communication and observation skills. Also willing to be

trained and do homework. The coach training is vigorous, not for the

wimpy. Every aspect of what you do is examined, honed, tested, and improved

on a regular basis.


4. The positions are part time for independent contractors but we need a

minimum of 10-15 school days per year.


5. Tryout is not paid. That is usually 1 day at a racetrack.


6. After the tryout, there is a short probation period, but we pay all

travel and other expenses, you use our bike, gear, etc. Probation period

depends on you and how much work you are putting into your training.


7. After probation, coaches are paid according to their coach training

level, how many of our training programs they have completed. Starts about

$150 per day, goes up from there.


Getting all these together in the same package is the hard part. Truthfully

we are a very dedicated, serious-about-being-the-best bunch.

About 1 in 25 that apply even get accepted for the training, much less make

it past the probation stage. If you have it in mind that this is just a

prestigious job for you to show others how well you ride, that it will be a cool

way to improve your own riding and get lots of track time, then this is not

the right thing for you, and your reasons for coming are not the same as ours.


We are a school, we train riders and racers and we do that totally. We don't

give jobs to our friends because we like them.


If you think you have the right stuff, download the application and e-mail it to me!
