Joining Requirements

Tigers is a team performance, we want our children to achieve and perform to the best of there ability. We never ask a child to do something they really do not want to do, but we do challenge them to try.

Being part of a team means a high level of commitment is required by both the child and the parents.

We train every Sunday from October to May, which is usually when the show season starts. This can mean that we are out in the cold and wet months; the training period always seems to go really quickly.

During our show season training is reduced and is dependant on the number of shows we have.

The show season is great fun for the whole family as sometimes we travel to shows and camp overnight; on one day shows we usually have access to the whole event with the added excitement of our performance!

During training and at shows your child remains your responsibility and therefore as parents you will be included in helping with the running of the team, this can mean placing ramps and equipment during performances, being one of our team first aiders, helping direct the children during shows or even training them to ride.

We hold an open day for new riders every October; the team is limited to a maximum of 24 riders. If we are over subscribed we will hold a selection day for new riders.

We have a junior and senior team of riders, the requirements for each is as follows.

Club Subscription is £150 per year for the first child and £75 per year for any siblings that also join the team. Payment plans are available to ensure that Tigers remains affordable.

Junior Team

  • Usually aged between 5yrs and 8yrs old
  • You will ride one of our club bikes (No owned bikes are permitted in the junior team)
  • You must be able to ride a push bike competently without stabilisers
  • A £150 bike hire fee is payable, within one month of joining. This money is set aside to buy replacement bikes in the future.

  • You must be able to control the weight of your bike.
  • We recommend you discuss the appropriate bike with one of our trainers prior to purchase.

For Juniors there is a £150 hire cost for the use of the Tigers Club Honda. This is payable within the first month of joining.
