EQUIPMENT REQUIRED:

Helmet with safety rating certified for mountain biking that fits your head snuggly but comfortably. The helmet should be free of dents, cracks, or defects. We recommend helmets be replaced every two years.
Closed-toed athletic shoes or mountain bike specific shoes
Clothing appropriate for the weather (warm layers and a rain jacket if necessary, or light breathable clothing for when it gets hot)
Geared mountain bike with knobby tires of at least 26-inch tires
Water bottle
Healthy snack
A tube that fits your tire, tire levers, and a mini pump. A quick link that fits your chain is also a good idea.

COACHING:

Unlike other youth sports programs, parents who want to participate and ride along with the team at practices are welcome to join the team as coaches. In 2020 the Chattahoochee Grippers had 22 registered coaches to facilitate our multi-group practice plans. A typical practice ride with the Grippers consists of multiple groups based on ability with each group requiring lead and sweep coaches.  For more information on coaching, please see our Coaches Page or Contact Us for more information.
