Chehaw Devo Youth MTB Team Spring Info Meeting

Chehaw Devo Youth Mountain Bike Team is a Albany-based composite team in the Georgia High School Cycling League. Any boy or girl in grades 6 - 12 in Southwest Georgia is welcome to join. While the team will go to competitions throughout the state in the fall of each year, competition is not the primary focus. Our goal is to introduce a new generation to the joy of mountain biking and instill a lifelong love of the sport. There are no tryouts for spots on the team and there is no cap on the number of team members. We are also working with local sponsors and the Georgia HS Cycling League to provide needs based scholarships to ensure that everyone who wants to compete gets a chance.
 
These events will consist of a short informational meeting to discuss the teams structure, goals and requirements for the Fall season, a fun bike related activity for all skill levels, and a bike safety check provided by Breakaway Bikes and Cycleworld Bikes.
 
All attendees MUST have a helmet and close toed shoes. All participants will also be required to have a NICA waiver signed by their parent or guardian before being able to participate in the clinic (Parents are welcome to participate).
 
Information sheets will be available at the event as well as sign-up sheets to get your student athlete signed up for the team.
