We had the Annual General Meeting of the ATBA-UK today to review how this year has been and announce our plans for next year. 

It’s been a challenging year for us with a drop in the number of riders attending competitions meaning that this year we tested a single three-discipline event for the first time. The UK Championship was enough of a success for us to build on and improve for next year. 

We have also changed how we manage the Instructor Training Programme, also in response to the drop in competitors and lost income from not being able to offer Competition Membership. The plan is to bring the ITP in-house and offer ATBA-UK Instructor Training to activity centre that have mountainboarding as one of their activities. 

Next year is going to be very interesting.
