Start of Regular Season Activities Delayed Until August 17

Yesterday, June 29, Governor Ducey signed a series of executive orders intended to combat the rapid rise of COVID-19 cases in Arizona. In one measure aimed at protecting public health for students and teachers, the governor announced that schools shall delay the start of in-person classes for the school year that begins July 1 until August 17, and by extension, resuming all school-related athletics is delayed as well. In response to this development, the league is postponing the start of its regular season team activities until August 17.

We couldn’t be more disappointed about the delay, however the most pressing concern right now is limiting the risk for our student-athletes, coaches and families, and the welfare of our entire community.

We are continuing to move forward with planning and preparation for the 2020 race season and will do everything in our power to create memorable interscholastic mountain biking experiences when we get going again. And we’ll be able to accomplish that as long as everyone does their part to stay safe and vigilant in our fight against COVID-19. Following health department guidelines and taking proper precautions will go a long way toward slowing the spread of the virus.

Riding is a low risk activity and we hope that you will continue to enjoy your bike and the outdoors. Just remember to do it in small groups, manage appropriate distancing and wear a mask when you're unable to GUARANTEE that you will maintain physical distancing of at least 6 feet.

Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay positive.
