906 Adventure Team looking for coaches for upcoming season
The 906 Adventure Team met up with some potential coaches Wednesday night in Marquette. It's part of an effort to continue to grow the program and make sure there are enough coaches.
The 906 Adventure Team is a nonprofit organization promoting outdoor activity, confidence and overall fitness through mountain biking.
The group has been expanding in the past few years into new communities including Ironwood, Ishpeming and Marquette.
"The meet ups are an opportunity for the public to come in and ask us the common questions like 'What are you guys?' 'When do you meet?' 'How can I sign up?'," said Director of Adventure for the 906 Adventure Team, Todd Poquette. "We've got to get more coaches in front of the camera for them to tell their stories because, what I hear from them is that they feel like they get as much from the experience in the summer as the kids do."
The meet ups are planned monthly during the winter months. In the spring, usually by mid-May, the group is able to start riding again.
