OTHER CONSIDERATIONS

Choosing Your Clinic Location

When considering which location to attend for your Ninja clinic, keep in mind that each location offers a unique terrain and features, shaping the Ninja curriculum to suit the local trails. For example, if you’re eager to tackle big rocks and ledgy drops, Sedona, AZ might be your destination. If high-speed cornering is your focus, check out Bend, OR. And if rolling over roots seamlessly is your goal, Brevard, NC awaits. No matter your choice, expect to leave with increased confidence and a broader skill set.

Adventure 2-Day Camps

If you’re up for an adventure, consider an “Adventure” 2-Day Camp. These camps cover the same curriculum as regular 2-Day Camps but take place in highly sought-after riding destinations. Even if you opt for a standard camp, rest assured, you’ll still be challenged and emerge as a better rider. With our careful selection of teaching locations nationwide, you might be surprised by the quality of your local trail network.

Next Steps After Attending a Clinic

Already attended a Ninja clinic and wondering what’s next? Just like rewatching a favorite movie, returning for a repeat event allows you to pick up on new insights and absorb more information. Join us for a clinic in a different location to experience varied trails and instruction styles.

Unique Event Offerings

We also like to shake things up occasionally with unique events like our 3-Day Camp at Mulberry Gap in North Georgia. Combining our traditional 2-Day Camp curriculum with longer rides and more time to apply your skills on-trail, these events offer a refreshing twist (plus blueberry pancakes, hot tubs, and fireside hangs).
