Girls Team - Full Season
Build skills, confidence, and camaraderie. Spring & Summer fun & adventures on the bike.
SMBA Girls is a program for athletes 6th grade and up who have previously participated in camps or team programs, are ready to build upon their basic bike handling skills, and want to spend more time on the trail. The team’s mission is to have a lot of fun while riding together, build team camaraderie, encourage each other to meet new challenges on the trail, build skills on the bike, and ride, ride, ride!
This is a full time program and athletes who register will ride together as a team with our Girls’ Team coaches throughout the spring and summer sessions (March – August). Like our other full time programs, the Girls program will focus on a continuous progression of skills throughout the year. The program is designed to build a sense of team, teamwork, confidence, and self-responsibility; and further emphasize athletes’ roles as ambassadors for the sport of mountain biking.
Team rides will be organized around a progression from shorter after school rides on moderately challenging trails in the spring, to full day adventures on challenging trails and routes in the summer. Girls program athletes will also have the opportunity to test the waters of racing at a team supported race during the summer session.
The Girls program gives athletes the opportunity to build skills on the bike; and fosters a life-long love for the sport in a fun, non-competitive and encouraging environment. Coaches work with each athlete to set goals for the year and help them meet new challenges on the bike with confidence.

Girls program athletes must be comfortable riding on rocky singletrack trails with varying topography. It is also important that athletes have some basic bike handling skills including: shifting, braking, and standing up on their pedals on downhills. To ride the trails safely, athletes must have a properly fitting, trail-ready mountain bike in good working condition. We recommend bikes with at least 24” sized tires.
