We have changed our name from East High Mountain Bike Club to SLC Conglomerate MTB Team and we are no longer officially affiliated with East High School, although the majority of our student athletes are from East. The change allows us to recruit and coach any 9th - 12th grade student at any Salt Lake City area high school that does not have a high school mountain bike race team at his or her school. Welcome to students at East, West, Highland, and others.
We did this so that students from other schools could participate in one of the coolest sports around. Also, East has a rule that clubs must not have outside adult leadership. Our parent league, NICA, and our local league, the Utah High School Cycling League, have too many excellent resources to wave all that way just so we can be an official club at East. We think the change will be good.
