Adelaide Dirt League

We are proud to introduce the Adelaide Dirt League. This is Australia’s first weekly mountain bike competition for riders aged 8 – 13 years. The Head for the Hills team will deliver a weekly program of mildly competitive activities, games and races that are structured to promote rider development in a fun and safe environment. This program is a fantastic alternative to mainstream weekend sports, giving kids an opportunity to regularly participate in a sport that they truly resonate with.

Term 3 – Pilot Program

Registrations close one week before the programs start date

We are running a ten week pilot version of the Adelaide Dirt League competition in Term 3. Once we have completed the pilot program, we will commence the full six month competition in October.

Program Information

The Adelaide Dirt League competition commencing in Term 3 will be comprised of 10 weekly mini-events held in various locations on Saturday mornings. These fun events will be designed to incorporate all aspects and disciplines of mountain biking and will include a competitive element that will be measured by our coaches. The program will enable us to track the development of participants and promote the benefits of employing a growth mindset and focusing on process goals.
