Hi Everyone

Both Squads meet in the stadium at 4:30pm and practice is over at 6pm

All you need to do is bring a bike (preferably mountain), helmet, jacket and water! We will be meeting in the stadium and then heading off to different stations to learn new skills.

  A huge thank you to everyone for helping clean up the trails, stadium, Jack Rabbit Hut and Race Office. Everything looks amazing and now we are in good shape for when the snow arrives this week. Also, there were a few things left behind from the past few practices, I've put them in the roller ski can for safekeeping. Can you please grab your forgotten item at your next practice, thanks!




For practice this week we have a few events!

Green and Purple both have dryland training. Meet in the stadium for 4:30pm

All Squads will be orienteering! The practice has been lengthed by 30 minutes because there is a lot to cover! If your child needs to leave at the regular 12:30pm that okay because we will be in the stadium around that time.
