Yamaha Champions Riding School is a motorcycle training program based at New Jersey Motorsports Park in Millville, New Jersey. It is the evolution of the now-defunct Freddie Spencer High Performance Riding School and spent its first four years at Miller Motorsports Park. The program is led by Nick Ienatsch. Former AMA racer Ken Hill has also been a lead instructor since the school's founding.

The school is based on Ienatsch's book Sport Riding Techniques and has occasionally had guest instructors such as Yamaha sponsored MotoGP, World Superbike and AMA racers such as Colin Edwards, James Toseland, Josh Hayes and Ben Spies. World Superbike and AMA Superbike Champion Scott Russell has also been a frequent guest instructor.

The school's close partnership with Yamaha-US puts students on R6s, and also exposes them to Yamaha teams who occasionally test during the schools. These tests allow students to get a first-hand glimpse at the machinery and processes of the best roadracing teams in the country.

A Yamaha Champions Riding School facility also exists at Utah Motorsports Campus (previously named Miller Motorsports Park), near Salt Lake City, Utah.

The school's 2016 instructor line-up included MotoAmerica racers J. D. Beach, Cameron Beaubier, and Garrett Gerloff.
