https://www.utahmtb.org/race Farmington High School is in the North Region.
The schedule will be consistently updated in TeamSnap. Check there for the most up-to-date information.
Rides typically start in early June and continue until right before the last race.
In the summer, the whole team will ride on Monday mornings, with part of the team riding Wednesday evenings and part of the team riding Thursday evenings. We have large numbers this year, and this will minimize our impact at the trailheads.
When school starts in the fall, practices will be moved to Monday and Wednesday/Thursday evenings.
Occasionally, we will have Saturday rides.
League fees cover NICA membership, practices, race fees, and insurance.
Team fees cover jersey, bibs, t-shirt, socks, hat, FHS water bottle, team registration, team equipment, race day supplies and food, and the team banquet.
Strava is a social network app that athletes use to record and track workouts. Recording your rides on Strava allows coaches to see your activity and celebrate your progress. It is a great way to build friendships, find ride buddies and virtually cheer for other team members. It is a safe forum that allows various levels of privacy settings.
TeamSnap a sports team management app available for free download in the App Store and Google Play Store. Shortly after completing your FHS MTB registration Google form, you will be sent a Team Snap invitation. You will need to create a profile on Team Snap. All team communication is handled through Team Snap. Registration on Team Snap is mandatory for students and volunteers.
Check out the Volunteers page. It will take you to the sign up pages for various NICA positions and for the FHS team ride leader/coach positions. To help with food, race day set up, and other options, sign up through the TeamSnap app under the relevant activity.
Nope. There is a huge need for parents to help as ride leaders and volunteers. You don't have to be an amazing biker to ride with the students. We need parents with all skill levels. And think of how much you will improve your own abilities throughout the season. But, if you'd rather scrub toilets with your tongue than ride a bike, there are other ways for you to help out. See the Volunteers page for more suggestions.
There are ways to lessen the expense.

No. Sadly, no. Absolutely not. Don't even ask because it will just be awkward and painful for you and for the coach. Please try really, really hard to get everything done on time. If things are going to be tight, please reach out AHEAD of time.
Yes! Absolutely YES! Remember, all the winners were once beginners! Our fantastic coaches will place you in a group where you will feel comfortable. They work hard to teach you skills and give you lots of opportunity for practice. Think how cool you will feel next year when you are a seasoned veteran and all the new people are looking at you with admiring eyes.
No. However, races are really fun. There is an amazing spirit of camaraderie that you just don't feel if you show up only for your own race then go home. It really boosts the team spirit when families come and cheer for other racers, eat amazing food together and chat with everyone in our team family. You will be happily surprised by how many new friends you make!
