Hello Student Athletes, Parents and Coaches,

We will be hosting a NICA Haas Hall Mountain Bike Team informational pre-season student athlete and parent meeting for all returning riders, coaches and students that are interested in joining the team for the upcoming season. The meeting will be at Park Springs Park Pavilion in Bentonville on Tuesday, May 9th from 7pm to 8pm. We will review the overall team structure, what to expect at practices / races, required gear, expenses and answer any questions that you may have. The meeting is open to all 4 Haas Hall campuses grades 7th thru 12th.  All levels of riders are welcome from beginners to highly competitive. 

The NICA season officially starts July 1 and we are targeting practice to start on Thursday, July 6th. I’d like to meet with all of you to get an idea of how many riders we will have and at what locations. This will help to determine our practice locations and student to coach ratios. 

Please feel free to bring your bike if you are unsure it’s the right type of bike or to check if it’s practice ready. Also, one of our sponsors, Bike Shop Joe’s at 1206 SE Moberly Lane in Bentonville is offering free bike safety checks and minor adjustments (does not include full tune-ups, major repairs or parts). 

Looking forward to seeing everyone and meeting some new faces. If you cannot attend, please email me (dbetz@jakks.net) and I would be happy to send information. I will also be sending a recap of the meeting shortly after.  

Please feel free to pass this along to anyone you think might be interested.

Looking forward to seeing everyone at the meeting!
