Unlike most youth sporting teams, parents who want to help out and ride with our team are welcome to register as one of our many coaches. For the safety and security of our riders, parents are not allowed to ride with our team without completing coaching requirements. There is no cost to become a coach, and you don't need to make a huge commitment or be an expert rider to be a coach with the Rippers. In fact, we consider your ability to connect well with kids to be a more important trait in a good coach. All groups are led by our experienced coaches so newer coaches will be assisting them. Typically group size is limited to approximately eight riders and normally has at least two coaches assigned to that group to ensure the group stays together and meets our coach/rider ratios.
