Balance Bikes - for ages 2-5 years

These sessions have a primary focus on fun. We use the flat area of the BMX track and adapt coaching depending on the needs of each child.

The coaching objective of our Balance Bike sessions are to get children ready to do a full lap of the track unassisted. 

We'd expect children to successfully achieve this in the following approximate timescales

2 years old - approximately 6 months
3 years old - approximately 3 months
4 to 5 years old - approximately 1 month
