Special Team Programs
Teen Trail Corps
Teen Trail Corps supports NICA’s mission to build strong minds, bodies, character, and communities through cycling by creating a culture of service within our community. Teen Trail Corps supports NICA’s vision to see every youth empowered to be part of a thriving and engaged cycling community by introducing them to the world of advocacy. Mountain biking as a community has often felt a responsibility towards the trail systems we use and Teen Trail Corps is the NICA program to introduce our student-athletes to that culture of service. As leagues across NICA experience growth, NICA teams become highly visible users of the trail systems.
Here in La Crosse we will be working with the Outdoor Recreation Alliance (ORA) throughout the summer and during our team’s mountain bike season. We will be doing a variety of trail work and trail maintenance to advocate for community stewardship for all trail users while promoting the positive attitude that the La Crosse Area Mountain Bike Team brings to all trail use groups in our community. We will always be looking for new opportunities that allow us to share our appreciation of awesome trails with the greater La Crosse community.

NICA GRiT (Girls Riding Together) is NICA’s effort to recruit and retain more girls and female coaches in NICA programs. NICA is making a concentrated effort to increase the number of girls and female coaches in NICA programs by focusing on creating a more welcoming environment for girls to join through girls-only events, rides, camps, clinics and social opportunities. GRiT's goal is to empower female student-athlete's to make their mark, on or off the bike. All NICA leagues have an individual GRiT Coordinator to implement programming. Our 2024 GRiT coordinator is Anna Stindt. Feel free to reach out to Anna with any questions or ideas: email@example.com
