Saturday November 4th, 2016 Time for Coaches and Event Staff: Arrive no later than 7:30 am
Where: at the Lincoln College of Technology in Columbia, MD.
Students range in age from 16 - 21. The emphasis for the day is for instructors to teach advanced car control techniques they can use in every day driving - and to have an excellent set of volunteers to make this event as successful as our last event!
It's a fun day for everyone - students, parents, and coaches/volunteers!
If you've been with us before, you know what a rewarding day it is to work with new teen drivers and help them learn new skills to become better drivers.
If you've never done this before - what are you waiting for? Not ready to be an In-Car Coach? Not sure what this is all about? That's OK!! C'mon out and volunteer to help us run the event. There's always plenty to do!
In Car Coahes should have at least 1 year of SCCA Autocross, or 1 year of High Performance driving events, or some racing experience. In addition, instructors need to feel comfortable working with novice teen drivers. This means you should be capable of interacting with teens and helping them get the most out of their experience.
Volunteer Staff help out with setting up traffic cones used in the driving exercises, assisting with registration, setting up for lunch, making sure we stay on schedule throughout the day, etc. Anyone who has an interest in helping with the variety of tasks we need to accomplish throughout the day is welcome to sign up as a volunteer.
We need about 20 instructors for the event and an equal amount of volunteers.
In order to be an Instructor / In-Car Coach, you would need some expereince with high performance driving events or autocross events.
You also would need to complete an online training program and then e-mail the certificate to Rafael Garces at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you've already completed the training in prior years, you don't need to do it again.
