Working with Young Riders

One of the first questions you need to ask yourself is whether your child is old enough, big enough and mature enough to handle an ATV. Certainly you know your child better than anyone, but evaluate them as objectively as you can...their safety is at stake. We have prepared a "Readiness Checklist" to help you evaluate:

Physical Development
Visual Perception/Motor Development
Social/Emotional Development
Reasoning and Decision-Making Ability

You may fill out the checklist online or download and print it for offline use. For more information about evaluating your kids, order ASI publication "Parents, Youngsters and ATVs."
