We want program registration to be easy and fair. We are transitioning all programs to a three week pre-registration period. With this new system, everyone will have three weeks to pre-register their participant(s) for Little Bellas. After pre-registration closes, one of two things will happen: a) if the program is full or over capacity, we will use a random selection process to determine who gets in; or b) we will transition to our usual first come first serve registration to fill the remaining slots.
We hope this new process will ease some stress and help create a more fair registration system for all Little Bellas girls and families. See more information on our blog here.
What could be more fun than jumping on a bike after school and hitting the trails with the Little Bellas Austin Weekly Program?
The Austin Weekly program meets at Brushy Creek Lake Park and is open to girls of all abilities. Our goal is to create an environment where learning mountain bike skills, building confidence, and growing the camaraderie among young girls is centered around having fun. Whether it's riding the flowing trails or learning and testing new skills on the single track, Brushy Creek offers the perfect mix of fun and challenging for this program.
Girls and Mentors (we don't coach, we mentor) each week, will participate in a variety of activities including games and trail riding. Through the games and different activities, we focus on having fun, while using the different elements of an activity to teach and work on basic to more advanced mountain bike skills. This curriculum is designed to teach the girls skills progressively, and perpetuate the love of mountain biking, all while laughing, giggling, and having a great time! This program is for riding and fun and is not focused on competition.
Financial assistance is available if needed and we also have equipment available through our Gear Up program! Please communicate any of these needs when filling out the registration form for the program.
