The Rochester Mountain Bike Team is a high school club sport uniting students from all three high schools in Rochester, Michigan. Varsity letters are offered at Adams, Rochester and Stoney Creek high schools for those students racing in our Varsity Program. Students from out-of-district schools are welcome and encouraged to join us as well. We will work on your behalf with your school's administration to try to attain letter status for you or reward students with a team patch representing your achievements.
Students will train and compete in the Michigan Scholastic Cycling Association (MiSCA) Fall racing series. Students will race for both individual and composite team points throughout the season, which will accumulate as overall points. After the final race, these points are calculated and State Champions are awarded to the riders with the most points in each category (lowest race score is dropped).
"Rewarding Effort, Not Outcome"
Students racing in our Varsity Program will be rewarded for effort. We realize that it takes years to build fitness and skills levels on the bike and students racing in both the Junior Varsity and Varsity classes are eligible for a club Varsity letter. Students registering to race in JV will be invited to move up to Varsity by coaches based on race performance.
Parents and students will meet at our Varsity Kick Off meeting and discuss the requirements outlined below and adjustments can be agreed upon and made accordingly. WE WELCOME AND VALUE STUDENT INPUT!!!
Varsity Letter Requirements
Students wishing to earn a club Varsity letter MUST treat the race season as any Varsity Sport within their school. The season runs from mid-July through mid-October.
Note: A Club Letter in Mountain Biking is not eligible for a gym credit in RCS.
