What is race day like?
Race day is fun! NICA (fall) & VAHS (spring) set the dates and venues of their particular race series. There is typically a pre-ride time offered the day before the race and always before the 1st race of the day. Teams ride together for pre-rides and adults must be approved coaches to pre-ride. NICA & VAHS will send out a flyer with detailed info and race category times. The Head Coach will always forward this info just in case. Teams are expected to provide volunteers for certain needs during the races. There are typically food trucks available, but families are always reminded to bring what they need for their family - food & drink. As a team, the Chain Gang does organize a shared food table (no peanuts). It is important to bring all gear, race plates (which will be handed out at the 1st race), and team jersey. Helmets HAVE to be worn at all times if a leg is over the bike. Team jerseys MUST be worn & race plates MUST be attached to bikes for the entirety of race day, including the pre-ride. Not adhering to these rules will cause the team to lose points. Good sportsmanship is required ALWAYS! Each racer is representing the Chain Gang and should do so in an honorable manner. The races start by staging the category about to race, followed by a countdown, then the horn, & its go time! Any venue will be different in regards to spectator opportunities. Cowbells are the sound maker of choice to cheer on the racers. The atmosphere is exciting and supportive! The racers at the JV and Varsity level, as they ride more laps, there are opportunities for team members to hand out additional water to them. We highly recommend planning to stay for the whole day if possible to cheer on all groups. A podium ceremony takes place after each race with medals for the top five. Each category is recognized as well as team podiums. A podium ceremony is held for each race followed by overall placements. Podium etiquette - those that place should shake, high five, or fist bump all others on the podium.
Are boys and girls scored separately in the races?
Yes; boys and girls are scored separately for individual standings, but the team as a whole is co-ed. Points earned by the individuals in their respective categories are totaled and the team competes against other teams for their overall standing in the league.
Do parents have to know how to bike?
No, but we encourage you to try it. One of the best aspects of mountain biking is that, unlike many other sports, it is a sport in which the whole family can participate. You can learn together!
Can parents bike with the team during practices?
Yes; we encourage parents to come out and ride. You don’t have to be an expert rider to help out the team, but anyone participating in rides MUST register with NICA, pass a background check prior to participating in group rides, and complete NICA’s online concussion course.
Are there volunteer opportunities?
Most definitely! We need parents help as this team is run by volunteers - we work together to make the best experience for the kids. Volunteer options will be offered from specific NICA race day needs & VAHS requirements to team specific help at practice and/or at a race. NICA & VAHS expect each team to provide volunteer help at races; these needs will be sent out via email or sign-up genius (an easy online sign-up). Parents that want to help by riding (ride leader or sweep) need to be registered through NICA, undergo a background check, and have concussion training. Volunteers desiring to become higher level coaches must also complete NICA’s MTB 101 course, risk management , first aid/cpr, and various other classes based on the coach level desired. Other important volunteer needs include, but are not limited to; parking lot parents during practices, race day “fuel” suppliers (food & water contributions for the team), race day set-up & clean-up, team photogs, fundraiser organizers, & the end of the season party planners.
What criteria must the coaches meet?
Chain Gang coaches are all registered in the NICA system, have undergone NICA training, have passed background checks, and have completed concussion training. There are three levels of coaching within NICA’s certification (find specific details HERE). Coaches during the spring have the NICA qualifications. There are opportunities for interested parents to become part of the coaching crew as the team is run on volunteers. NICA has varying levels of coach training to fit any parent wanting to get involved. More coaches create even more development opportunities for the kids.
Is my child’s bike ok to ride?
A safe bike is extremely important - working brakes, good tires, etc. We recommend visiting one of the bike shop supporters for a safety check and tune-up. Bike fit is also an element to be considered. Riding a bike that is too small or too large can make the experience unpleasant and even dangerous. Riding a true mountain bike is a must; a bike purposely built to stand up to the pounding of the terrain. If you need further advice, please connect with our coaches.
How do coaches communicate?
What are the different race categories?
There are five different categories in which athletes can compete; middle school, freshman, sophomore, JV, and Varsity. These categories exist for both girls and boys. In most cases, your child will race according to their grade. Occasionally, if a student is consistently placing at the top of their division, the coach can petition for the rider to race in a more difficult category. The Head Coach uses practice participation and time trials to determine 1st race placement of athletes with-in the team. After the 1st race, placement is determined by that 1st race time.
