Off season is a time for the riders to recharge, and the spectators to update their qualifications! Have you an interest in the sport, but don’t ride and would like to be involved? Possibly even earn some cash? Then consider doing a first aid course and you are half way to becoming a Motorcycling WA qualified Practice Supervisor.
Practice Supervisors are unique to WA, that’s right no other states in Australia offer this flexible training opportunities at a Motorcycling Australia approved venue. It is a system which allows people to ride at a track at a non-scheduled event provided they have abided by the club’s rules, hold rider insurance (MA licence) and have a Practice Supervisor watching, ratio 1:5 riders. It’s a great opportunity for riders to become familiar and confident at the venue in their own time.
The role of a Practice Supervisors is simply to watch the riders limited to a max of five, and seek help or administer first aid in the case of an accident. An ideal job for parents or partners, but sometimes riders struggle to nab someone they know for this role, and this is where the community can step in to help. Cranbrook Districts MCC are seeking interested people who would like to become a Practice Supervisors, to link to these riders, possibly even for a fee! It’s also a rewarding role, giving back to the sport via allowing riders to practice in their own space.
