Rosemount Irish Coed Mountain Bike Team
The Rosemount Irish Mountain Bike Team is one of four teams in district 196 that practice together as our district mountain bike team. Even though we practice together, on race day each team high school represents their own high school and is scored as a separate team. We are a 7-12 program with race divisions for each grade level and separate divisions for male and female racers. As a Coed team our male and female racers are combined to determine overall team standing. This means it is important to have both strong male and female riders on our team. Middle school riders race for the high school they will be attending geographically, unless they have officially submitted open enrollment paperwork to the district. Our race season spans September through October like most fall sports but we begin preseason practice in July with regular in season practice beginning the second week of August.
We are an official club team. This status allows us the use of district facilities and allows us to award varsity letters to our athletes. Our team is insured by both ISD 196 through our partnership with Community Education and by our governing body, NICA.
