Volunteer and Coach Registration for Tire Rack Street Survival school at Watkins Glen International

Each year, over 5,000 teenagers die in motor vehicle crashes, the leading killer of American youths aged 16 to 19, accounting for more than 40 percent of fatalities in that age bracket. To reduce this number, Tire Rack Street Survival has developed a non-profit, national driver education program aimed at teaching teens the skills they need to stay alive behind the wheel.

In April 2002, the BMW Car Club of America Foundation launched the Tire Rack Street Survival┬« teen driver education program intended for teens and young adults.  This one day program, specially designed for any and all new drivers, teaches students to avoid accidents by thinking and looking ahead. The Street Survival┬« program is unique in that it offers students instruction in their own cars so that they learn the limitations of the vehicle they drive daily under varying road conditions.  Qualified instructors ride with students during the exercises to provide supervision and more personal instruction.  In addition, students receive classroom instruction on car control topics and participate in discussions about their in-car experiences.

Would you like to help Tire Rack Street Survival share its mission of saving teen lives through safe driving?  

Note:  This is for Volunteers and Coaches only.  Student registration is handled directly on the TRSS website: https://www.motorsportreg.com/index.cfm/event/register.trss/uidEvent/0DB5E44D-9B3C-6821-95904123480A4032

A one-day course designed to teach teen drivers effective car control techniques in a safe environment.  Students accompanied by a coach drive their own cars (including everything, from 911's to pickups and family vans) in a variety of exercises, including emergency braking and lane change, figure-8, slalom, and a low-speed autocross-like course linking all the skills together.  Students get to explore the limits of their vehicles and themselves, and come away from the experience as more confident and skilled drivers.

A Street Survival coach/volunteer shirt [if you''ve coached/volunteered previously, please bring your old one] are provided!
