Beginning Summer 2019, BYC’s program for kids in 6th through 12th grades will be affiliated with the new Montana Interscholastic Cycling League. We are joining over 26 states across the country who are part the National Interscholastic Cycling Association, a program that embraces cycling as a life-long sport and is dedicated to supporting student athletes in their development of strong minds, strong bodies, and strong characters. NICA’ s core values mirror the values of BYC, while connecting us to a larger cycling community.
BozeNICA will focus on improving riding skills and fitness, having fun, and fostering team camaraderie. Riders will greatly improve their mountain biking skills in a supportive, enjoyable team environment. Riders who prefer not to participate in races will still play an integral role, and may choose to support the team on race day in other ways.
BozeNICA has space for all kinds of riders from recreational to racing. This team is open to and perfect for ALL kids going into grades 6th through 12th who want to mountain bike!
- Promote athlete skills development, self-confidence, teamwork, professionalism and respect for the community and the environment
- Promote the sport of mountain biking and the benefits of mountain biking as a healthy, low impact, outdoor recreational lifestyle
The 2019 season will be the first official year of Montana’s NICA League and the BozeNICA Team!
