Registration begins on 12/8/2023 for all interested athletes. 

Deadline to register for the league is 3/31/2024.  There are no exceptions.

Before registering, make sure that you have attended an information session.  This is important because we discuss what the league is all about, where and when we practice, and all the necessary equipment that you will need to be on our team.  If you are unable to attend an info session but feel you have the necessary equipment and are ready to register, contact the team manager for the registration passcode.  There are no refunds after submitting your registration.

  1. A working full suspension or hardtail mountain bike that fits you (recommended but not required: dropper post)
