Kids Program 2022

SheFX

 

(Grades 3 -10 , ages 8 - 16 years)

 

SheFX offers the same awesome DFX structure and coaches but groups built with all girls. Coaches will provide a creative environment to progress skills to the next level, whether your daughter is just getting into mountain biking or already competing in Phat Wednesdays. Our goal is to have a strong emphasis on building the right team, encouragement and getting ready to take on whatever challenge is next. We will have groups of all abilities for your daughter to find new riding buddies at her level or bring a group of friends that we can build a group around. The number one goal is to get more girls stoked to ride!

Why SheFX?


Throughout the 10+ years of DFX we have seen the number of female riders in DFX decrease after the age of 8 and we are hoping to turn this around. Many of the girls who continue have ended up in groups with all boys of varying ages, while this works for some it doesn’t work well for others. We have also seen girls get into mountain biking at older ages and only have groups with much younger children at their ability. Girls of this age tend to drop out of sport if their friends do. With the development of SheFX we are hoping to create a group that will work for everyone where they can ride with a group of friends or meet peers that they can progress with as they continue to develop their passion for biking

Meet from 9:00 to 9:30am, groups will leave to ride at 9:30am sharp - please be on time and ready to go. We will be riding either on the trails or in the Bike Park for most of the day. Sometime will be spent at parks and lakes especially on hotter days but as the groups progress the amount of time spent off the trails will decrease.

  • Beginner and Novice groups will mostly be riding XC building up to riding some days in the Bike Park; your child's coach will let you know when their group is ready.
  • Intermediate and above groups will ride XC on Mondays and in the Bike Park on Wednesdays, unless your child's coach informs you differently, so please come with the appropriate bike and equipment (including a full face helmet).

Lunch will be usually on the trail or in the park, timing may vary depending on group energy, location and activity. Depending on the groups stamina breaks will be taken in the morning and afternoon as needed but the majority of the day will be on our bikes.

Pickup is from 3:00pm to 3:30pm; each child must be signed out by a parent. If your child will be picked up by someone else please inform the coach in the morning. If you would like your child to sign out by themselves please ask your child's coach for a sign out permission form.


We will be riding in all weather, so please make sure your child is prepared with rain gear and sunscreen!
