Event Details

Join the SoCal High School Mountain Bike League and Emergency Medical Services and Beyond (EMSB) for an innovative Wilderness First Aid training created for mountain bike coaches, ride leaders, and student-athletes. This 16-hour training is designed to prepare mountain bike coaches, and anyone who rides bicycles in the wilderness, to confidently and effectively respond to injuries and illness that can occur while riding. The training will focus on staying calm, making good decisions, and relevant hands-on practice, including scenarios specifically designed for mountain bike coaches. Upon completion, each participant will receive a Wilderness First Aid-Mountain Bike (WFA-MTB) Certification good for 3 years. Certification is through the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons. Please contact matt@socaldirt.org with questions.
