Devo’s Secret Sauce Seminars are for coaches and youth cycling program administrators. As a nationally-acclaimed youth program producing lifelong cyclists and professional athletes, Durango Devo is often asked, “How do we do it?” Devo’s Secret Sauce Seminars were created to share that knowledge and better prepare all programs and coaches across the country. We can help with a wide range of questions from, “How do we coach?” “What skills and games do we work on?” “How do you start, manage and run a non profit?” to “What type of Admin structure and tools do you use?” Through the Secret Sauce Seminars, Devo’s 16 years of experience will be shared along with what we’ve learned from both our successes and mistakes.

Devo’s Secret Sauce is deliverable in several different ways to help best serve your needs:

This workshop is all online, one hour a night via Zoom with professionals in the nonprofit and junior cycling world. The focus of this workshop (unlike the other 3 Secret Sauce options which are coach focused) is how to run a sustainable program. A large focus of this workshop will be sharing information between programs, non profit development, board development, and learning junior cycling best practices. This virtual workshop will follow up with an informal, in person gathering at Coal Basin Ranch in 2022.

“Thank you so much for putting this together. It was super worthwhile. Worth way more than I paid for. Especially loved the sharing of presentations, documents, etc. Great seminar. Would recommend to every coach in our league, and beyond. Thank you!”
–Kate Rau, Colorado NICA League

“This was such a great opportunity to get a deep dive into the Devo program and what makes a mountain biking organization successful. As I have been building out our program, I constantly find myself asking “what does Devo do?” This seminar helped me answer many of those questions. I would love to send people from our organization to this seminar in the future so I look forward to future opportunities such as this. I have been to many different seminars, conferences, mtb instructor clinics, etc and this was one of the most comprehensive and the cheapest. Thank you so much!”
–Flagstaff Flyers ED Tyler

“Overall this was an excellent seminar and I was excited to have the opportunity to participate and will recommend it other coaches in the future for the August option. I really liked the outdoor skills. This helped to give me a good visual representation of how you set things up and how it is conducted. Joining the optional days helped a lot more in being able to see how a practice is conducted.”
–High Desert Devo Coach Chase

“You guys rock and can’t wait for more of the Secret Sauce in the future.”
–Rick Smith

“Overall, you hit it out of the park for your very first seminar offered! We enjoyed the size being small since it allowed more intimate conversations. All the different coaches that led the sessions had their own twist on things and offered so many practical ideas. It was good to experience each level. Change? Nothing!”
–Highland Ranch Program Director and Coaches Julie and Roger

“Awesome job as always. The Seminar was very informative and it’s always great to get like-minded folks together to discuss youth development and mountain biking. Unfortunately, there aren’t too many of these opportunities so please keep em coming.”

–Coach from Session
