Call for Nominations - Under 19, Under 17 and Under 15

WAMBA is calling for nominations for the 2016 WAMBA National Mountain Bike Championships Junior State Team to attend the MTBA National Mountain Bike Championships, being held on Thursday 17th to Sunday 20th March 2016 in Bright, Victoria.

The State Team will consist of riders who wish to compete in either or all of the following disciplines: Downhill, Cross Country and Observe Trials.

Riders are to be aged between 13 and 18 years, with the exception of some exceptional great Under 13 riders who wish to do the downhill event (providing they have good references from a personal coach).

This team works together as a collective of athletes and will be supervised under the direction of the Team Manager/ Head Coach. Parent helpers are required to provide assistance to the team in support roles and athletes manage their own logistics. State team selected riders are eligible to receive Department of Sport and Recreation funding, as well as other Government funding (if they meet the requirements).

The National Mountain Bike Championships is an open event to any rider, whether you are a State Team member or not. This means that riders who do not make the team can still compete and travel with the rest of the State team, if they wish to. The riders who do not make the team may not be eligible for some of the Government funding, will not be eligible to wear any state team clothing, or take part in any team photos.

However, we encourage all WA riders and families to support each other for the betterment of the sport.
