Preparations for 2021 Season Begin With Call for Coaching Candidates

As most of you probably know by now, we’re in search of a new head coach, as our long-time Head Coach for the past 7 years, Andrew Shaber, has chosen to step away from the daily commitment of leading our team. Luckily, Andrew has partnered with our Team Director, Carolyn Park to make sure we have a smooth transition to new leadership for our team of more than 125 student athletes and 50 active parent volunteers.
BBMTB Leadership is currently building our platform for the 2021 season to move forward within the Idaho Interscholastic Cycling League, and National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) under the leadership of a new Head Coach and our current Team Director, Carolyn Park.
If you are interested, or know someone who might be, please see the cover letter and job description for more information.  Interested candidates will need to submit their resume and cover letter to Lance Davisson, Board Member and Coach Liaison, at by February 15, 2021.

Welcome to the 2021 Season!
A Message From Your Team Director

Greetings, and welcome to the unofficial start to our 2021 season! As you can see, we are already planning for a great year, discussing potential scenarios related to the Global Pandemic, and on the hunt for a new head coach. While that may sound daunting, I couldn’t be happier to be discussing the prospects of another BBMTB season and getting back on our bikes! Check back here for more information and keep an eye on your email and team snap for details as they unfold.

Happy Trails + Be Safe.

Carolyn Park, Team Director
Boise Brave Mountain Bike Team

We are close to having 65 licensed Coaches; with a few more invited in the NICA PitZone, but we could always use more to help manage 125+ Student-Athletes. If you are new to the Team, this is a great way to get to know us, experience hands-on how we run our Team and do it all alongside your child – although typically we don’t Coach our own!  I know I talked to quite a few new parents at the registration kickoff that were interested, but I may not have captured your name. It’s not too late – send me an email today! In 6 simple steps you will complete your Level 1 licensing! The Idaho League is covering the coach licensing fee this season! Be brave and sign up today!
