Welcome to the SMGS Mountain Bike Academy.

Open to Years 7-11 day and boarding students, the MTBA program will run for a full day on Wednesdays during Term 1 as a specialist downhill development program, with qualified and experienced coaches at Thredbo.

Places are limited, with the goal of expanding in the following years.
