Lose The Training Wheels is in need of volunteers!
The 2nd Annual Lose the Training Wheels (LTTW) bike camp is July 11-15 at UTA, and many volunteers are needed!
Our biggest volunteer need is for spotters, people who walk (and later run, as participants progress) alongside the riders to catch them if they start to fall. There are five 75-minute sessions each day Monday-Friday; volunteers choose a session(s) and commit to it for the week, working with the same participant(s) each day.
We also need administrative help (check in table, etc.), medical volunteers Wednesday-Friday, to look for signs of dehydration/heat exhaustion and render first aid if necessary, and assertive people to guard an outside door Wednesday-Friday, limiting traffic in to LTTW participants. (The camp begins inside; participants move outside after they’ve progressed to a two-wheel bike.)
There will be volunteer training on July 10 (1-2 hours).
Session times are as follows:
Session 1 8:30am-9:45am
Session 2 10:05am-11:20am
Session 3 11:40am-12:55pm
Session 4 2:00pm-3:15pm
Session 5 3:35pm-4:50pm
Spotters need to be at least 16 years old. If you can help, please post to comments, and Amie will email you a volunteer form.
If you know others who’d be interested, please pass this info on to them. If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Mearns at 817-390-2970.
