2022 Street Survival #1 (April), Volunteers

Michelin Proving Grounds

About this event

Street Survival Volunteers and Coaches, we are finally getting back together for this program on March 26th for training and April 2nd for TRSS.

 

The Street Survival will be April 1st for setup and April 2nd for the students activities.

We expect a full-house of students with a waitlist, so 12-15 coaches will be required, plus volunteers, to handle this event properly.

PLUS, we are in need of a driver, with current CDL, to handle the water truck and tractor trailer rig.  Without this volunteer we will not be able to put this event on.  If you or a friend have a CDL please refer them to me.

Please check your clendars and register now for coach or volunteer.

Thanks,

Volunteer Registration for Tire Rack Street Survival at Michelin Proving Grounds, Laurens, SC

The Street Survival school teaches new drivers the fundamentals of car control under the guidance of in-car Coaches (instructors).  As a volunteer, you will be helping the students become more comfortable and confident with operating a vehicle.  We want to encourage the students to drive safe and drive smart.

There are two main volunteer positions; in-car Coach and Course Monitor.

As a Course Monitor, you are responsible for maintaining the integrity of the course. This includes..

  • directing any drivers who are lost
  • setting up cones that are knocked over
  • supervising skid pad operation
  • assisting students during vehicle inspection

As a Coach, you will provide students with in-car instruction during the driving portion of the school.  Previous coaching experience is not required, but a good understanding of car dynamics and safety is necessary. Depending on the number of registered coaches, you may have up to (2) students. Some topics to discuss with your student(s) include...

  • ABS operation
  • weight transfer
  • understeer and oversteer
  • "eyes up", look ahead
  • distracted driving

Plan to arrive at 7:00AM and plan to leave around 5:30PM. Lunch is provided.

Event requirements

**All in-car Coaches need to complete an online training course prior to the date of the event.**
