BEFORE YOU REGISTER…
Before you begin the team registration process, we have a few minimum requirements and things for you to consider regarding participation in the program:
- We’re self-supported — we are not funded by the school. Money for the program comes from fundraising, sponsors, and riders’ families. A full season is a relatively expensive endeavor. Family donation amount and League fees will be made available later in the year. We have full need-based scholarships available.
- We operate more like a team than a club. Nearly all of our activities are off-campus rides done outside of school hours during the season. On-campus, school-time meetings will be rare.
- All participants must commit to at least two (2) practices per week, and to completing at least three (3) races in the NorCal High School Mountain Bike Racing League series.
- All participants must meet the academic requirement of a 2.2 GPA. Riders not meeting the requirement will be suspended from all team activities until that requirement is met.
- Drake MTB events including the Tamarancho 1000, Trailwork Day, Drake MTB Kick-Off Dinner, and End-of-Season BBQ and any Team Fundraisers are important and attendance by all riders is mandatory.
Please discuss this openly with your parents/guardians as well as going over our FAQs page for more important info to consider and discuss.
Drake MTB is a life-altering experience. We invite you to embrace it.
