Motorcycling WA's Elite JET Camp, a fully subsidised program by Motorcycling Western Australia for selected participants, kicks off this Monday, April 10th at Woodman Point Recreation Centre and is aimed at Western Australia’s top riders. JET Camp is an amazing opportunity for competitors from all disciplines age 13-18 years old from across the state.
This year we have a fantastic line up of presenters and sponsors to give participants their best expert off-the-bike advice and support. Mark Gill from Leading Edge Motorsport is a Level 2 coach and will be facilitating the JET Camp once again alongside National Motocross Champion and Privateer Daniel Banks.
Some of the new activities for 2017 will be Cross Training with Bruce MacFie, Stand Up Paddle Boarding, Flying Fox and a day trip to WAIS.
Mark and Daniel will lead also participants in learning what it takes to go from being a talented rider to a champion rider. JET camp participants will learn the essential skills of Fitness and Cross Training, Diet and Nutrition, Psychological Preparation, Preparing a Pathway to Success, Sponsorship and Dealing with Sponsors. Supporting and team building activities are all done with a competitive flavour! Fitness Assessments including a Shuttle Test as used in the AIS Camps will provide a bench mark for participants for further improvement and in setting their own fitness and exercise programs.
ASBK Champion and WSBK competitor Bryan Staring will be assisting Mark and Daniel facilitating seminars on Pathway to Success, Dealing with Sponsors, Travelling Tips and Preparing for Competition. Bryan comes with a long list of success on and off the track, and this is a unique opportunity to learn from someone who has ‘been there, done that’.
Motorcycling WA’s Media Officer, Linda Russell and Training Officer Janine Wragg will also be participating and on hand during the camp to assist coaches and provide further guidance. Both Linda and Janine have a vast amount of experience dealing with sponsors, media, event co-ordinating and social media.
Each year JET Camp grows and expands and for 2017 we expanded our sponsorship of the JET Camp program to help ramp up the healthy competition between the participants in each of the daily challenges. With this in mind it was important MWA partnered with the right fit sponsors to ensure the success of the JET Camp program.
MWA could not have partnered with more appropriate brands that not only continually support our sport but also convey the ethos and culture of JET Camp, we are delighted to reveal such a diverse range of sponsors and we can't thank them enough for supporting this fantastic opportunity for Junior development within the sport of Motorcycling.
