The Sprockids San Diego Jumping Fundamentals clinic teaches how to safely and effectively handle your bike while getting airborne! This is taught in a park environment using progressive jump sizing though skills drills, games, and fun activities.
In this clinic we will review bike safety and how to conduct an ABC bike check, importance of a properly fit helmet and a helmet check, the three mountain bike essentials, what neutral and ready position are and how and when to use them as well as proper bike body positioning and separation. We expect all riders attending to have a reasonable grasp on these concepts beforehand.
Your rider will learn: the importance of using a foot wedge and body wedge to maintain control of the bike, front and rear wheel lifts, pressure control and stomping into the lip of a jump, body mechanics while airborne and landing technique.
This is an intermediate to advanced clinic and riders signing up should have a reasonable confidence in bike handling. The event is suitable for riders aged 8+ that have been through a Sprockids Fundamental I and II clinic or After School Program. If you have not ridden with us before and are unsure if this event is suitable for your rider, please reach out to discuss.

Please come ready with a mountain, dirt jump, slopestyle or BMX bike that is recently serviced and well working. Don’t forget to double check the chain, brakes and tire air pressure. Wear a properly fitted helmet (snug is important), closed toe sneakers and athletic clothing that is safe to ride in and weather appropriate. Well fed and hydrated riders tend to have the most fun!
