Champions Certified Coach (3C)

Train to be a certified Champ School coach

Many students attend YCRS to better themselves as track day coaches, control riders, or even rider coaches. Track days and touring groups who employ YCRS graduates report safer events with overall higher quality due to properly trained coaches. This prompted 3C, our Champions Certified Coach program.

N2 Track Days is a great example: Six years ago they launched N2 from the ashes of NESBA, basing their program on YCRS approaches, our “Champions Habits”. Since then, they have grown to be the top track day club on the east coast and are touted as one of the safest clubs in the country.

YCRS now offers a certification program for all clubs or individual riders interested in elevating the level of their control riding and coaching with three steps:

  1. Take a ChampSchool. Pass examinations.
  2. Come back and evaluate a ChampSchool. Pass examinations.
  3. Come back as a guest instructor until ready for the certification.

Champions Certified Coaches:

  • Learn what riding techniques work best on a motorcycle
  • Return to learn the methods of teaching Champions Habits
  • Be on the short-list to become a YCRS Instructor
  • Monetize your skills with private coaching or advanced coaching like N2’s ATP
  • Get discount and referral codes to build referral fees or credits towards YCRS schools
  • Expect a more prevalent role as YCRS expands

Andrew Cox

3C Instructor

I am a Yamhill County native, growing up in a motorcycle family. My affinity for riding was born and I began riding motorcycles at age five. In my teen years, my parents owned a Yamaha shop, where I grew my knowledge of motorcycles. Since then, I have been a racer, a coach for the California Superbike School, and founded Cox Racing Group manufacturing racing parts. I now found a home with the gang at Track Time, LLC, have written "Guiding to Riding" to outline the nuances of safe street riding and discovered Champions Habits with YCRS, growing my desire to pass along knowledge. Contact me or find me at a Track Time event and let's learn something together!

I was born and raised in Minnesota where i grew up riding pretty much everyday. After joining the Navy, I ended up on the west coast by Seattle. I got into track riding a few years ago and much like a fat kid with cake, I couldn't get enough! After my first few track days i started getting serious about riding and attended a a few riding courses/schools, with YCRS being by far the best school.
