Teaching you to ride like a champion, our Yamaha Champions School makes street riders safer and more confident and gives track-day riders even more advanced skills.
Classes are capped at 20 students, so you can plan on getting a huge amount of personal attention from some of the best riding instructors in the world. You’ll find brand-new riders in this school, as well as seasoned veterans back for their fourth class, all interested in honing their skills.
The Champions School covers everything from choosing the best line through a corner to correct use of the brakes. A combination of drills, lead-follow lapping, open lapping, discussions, on-track demonstrations and video with individual review help you meet your goals—and exceed your expectations.
Two Day Price: $2,295
Regardless of your skill level or experience, each class will identify your
strengths and weaknesses and advance your ability. Your instructor will work
with you – whether in the Two-Day or Three-Day School, to fine-tune your ability and
meet your riding goals. We’ll share the tehcniques that have made champions and
have you riding with the poise of a winner.
"I have to say the curriculum is highly developed, Nick and the guys have a clear answer for every conceivable question. I liked the tempo of the schedule. My five buddies and I had a tremendous experience. Thanks for a great time and we will be coming back!"
"The Yamaha Champions Riding School ranks as one of the best courses I've enrolled in and is definitely worth a return visit."

"I’ve been to a bunch of riding schools. I have to say at the end of the day (two days, actually), I learned the mostest – and wound up going the fastest – at this one."

How about the best 600 on the planet, the Yamaha R6? Thought you'd like that. We also have a handful of R6Ss, a more street-oriented version of the R6, and a few FZ1s for those of long inseam that just can't fold themselves on a 600. Add the FZ8 and you will find a terrific choice of bikes.
No, sign up and we'll put you on an R6S, an FZ8 or an FZ1. The S is a slightly-roomier version of the R, and the FZ line is a fantastic sport bike for tall guys.
Yes, you will be allowed to ride as fast as the bike, rider and track allow. We have no speed limits at YCRS, but we do have control limits. Speed is a direct reflection of how you use the controls, and we will stress proper control usage. To us, too much entrance speed isn't really a speed issue, it's a "lack of control" issue.
