Can parents ride at practice?

Yes, and we encourage it! We absolutely need parents to help out at practices, and you do not need to be an experienced mountain biker. You do need to become certified as a NICA Level 1 volunteer, which is a relatively simple process. You just need to complete a background check; online training courses on safety, concussions, and risk management; and pay a $65 coach license fee in PitZone. Level 1 volunteers can ride with the team all year and even help with the team pre-ride at races.
