Over the next few months Motorcycling Western Australia will be highlighting their many accredited coaching clinics that are being held throughout Western Australia by a group of very talented coaches-most being current or previous state and national champions in their chosen sport. As coaching clinics can be vastly different we are hoping that this series of coaching articles will help you make an informed decision as to what coach and clinics best suit you and your style of riding.
The timing is perfect for Moss Institute because after many emails and phone calls from riders and parents requesting them to come back to WA –their WA supporters have organised a date for Moss Institute to head back to WA.
Moss Institute will be doing a Advanced /Tackle The Track Pre Titles at Collie May 13 & 14 open to anyone capable of racing the State Titles.

MWA Coaches Profile-Moss Institute
With championships in both Australia and abroad, New South Wales-based Moss Institute conducts professional motocross coaching nationwide, year-round.
Gregory Moss is the head coach and founder of the Moss Institute, developing a proven coaching technique after almost 40 years in the sport and over 20 years of coaching experience.
Accredited by the Australian Institute of Sport as a Level 2 Master Coach, Greg has an eye for up and coming Australian talent, developing many of our national and international professionals.
With a unique talent in analysing riding techniques and communicating with riders, Greg has what it takes from both a basic and world-class perspective.
Those features have been honed for many years working alongside professional sons Jake and Matt Moss, who have both achieved domestic national championships and American AMA podiums.
Highlights during the racing career of Jake and Matt include some of Australia’s most historic motocross milestones. Those results came after years of hard work and refinements, but aren’t just limited to Greg’s sons in the sport.
Jake stood alongside countrymen Chad Reed and Michael Byrne in an Aussie sweep of the 450 Class podium in moto one at Southwick’s AMA Pro Motocross Championship round in 2009. Jake is one of just five Australians who have reached the podium at the pinnacle of the sport in the U.S outdoors.
Matt was part of Team Australia’s 2011 Motocross of Nations team, which was the first ever to stand on the overall podium in third overall. Joined by Reed and Brett Metcalfe, Matt’s Australian team stood proud alongside Team USA and home team France at St. Jean d’Angely.
With these results and the recent podium of Matt in the West Coast Lites class of AMA Supercross at San Diego, Greg remains the lone coach in the country to train a rider from club level racing on a PeeWee to AMA Pro Racing in America.
Jake and Matt feature as assistant Moss Institute coaches when available and are Level 1 accredited, also gifted with unique skills to communicate and transfer their techniques to students during the programs.
Also under the guidance of Greg, Australia’s first and only official FIM Motocross World Championship was won by Jay Wilson in the 85cc junior category during 2009. Greg was the team coach for the Australian squad on that occasion.
Australian Women’s Motocross Champion Meghan Rutledge is also an experienced and well accomplished Moss Institute rider. Coached by Greg since the age of four, Meg dominated the national women’s titles in her rookie season during 2011 at the age of 16. Other professional riders that Greg has coached and worked alongside since young ages include Luke Styke, Jackson Richardson, Todd Waters and Ford Dale – all who have gone on to battle at the front of the field at a pro level in Australia.
