who we are

The Nebo Composite Mountain Biking Team is a coed team of student athletes in grades 7–12 from the following schools:

  • Springville High School

  • Maple Mountain High School

  • Spanish Fork High School

  • Salem Hills High School

  • Payson High School

 

In 2020, we had 95 student athletes on our team and anticipate adding 20–30 more for the 2021 season. 

We are part of the Utah High School Cycling League which is an affiliate league of the (NICA) National Interscholastic Cycling Association.

OUR Mission

Our goal as a team and league is to help kids develop strength of character, mind, and body through the lifelong sport of cycling. As they participate in practices and races, the kids will make friends, build confidence, gain strength, and have adventures that they will remember for a lifetime!

  • Fun

  • Inclusivity

  • Equity

On our team, everybody rides. There are no tryouts or cuts.  We believe everyone should be able to participate in our program and feel welcomed, respected and supported.

Communications

Join us on slack

Good communication is vitally important for a team our size to function.  We use Slack, a free app, for all team communications including announcements, roster information, activity schedule, training information, and to manage attendance. If you aren't on Slack, you won't know when things are happening or if last minute changes have occurred. You must get on Slack often and indicate whether or not you will be attending practices, races, and other events.  With a team of our size it is crucial that the coaches know who is coming to each practice or race so we can plan accordingly. Once you register with the team, we'll send you an invite to join the team Slack channel.

 

* It is critical that both RIDERS and PARENTS register and participate on Slack.
