All of the Alter Ego Club coaches are involved in the Kids of Mud program because we love to ride and want to teach your kids the skills they need to enjoy riding off-road as much as we do

The minimum requirement for becoming an Alter Ego coach is successful completion of a National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) Community Coach workshop. As well, each coach must have current Standard or Emergency First Aid certification and must clear a Child Abuse Registry check each year and a Criminal Record check every 3 years.

The Alter Ego Club strongly believes in the value of skilled coaches and is committed to coach development within our club. Our certified coaches are VIP members and all certification requirements are at the expense of our club.
