Head Coach Ken Mozek started the club in 2008. Coach Ken, a long time cyclist, has always had a passion for mentoring youth, and the chance to mentor high school students through mountain biking was irresistible. With 5 boys and 6 girls in the club and a few parent coaches, they trained and competed in the NorCal High School MTB League. The club has grown since then to over 60 riders, one of the largest teams in the NorCal League.
National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA)
NICA is the parent organization of the NorCal League (www.nationalmtb.org). Formed in 2009, their mission is to "build strong minds, bodies, character, and communities through cycling," while valuing equality, inclusivity, strong mind, strong body, and strong character. They are headquartered in Berkeley, CA and manage high school MTB leagues currently in 25 states.
The NorCal High School Cycling League was organized in 2001 to provide quality mountain biking programs for students in grades 9 to 12. The League hosts over 70 high school teams throughout Northern California. The League is committed to providing a positive experience for all student-athletes regardless of ability level and helping them to create a strong body, mind, and character through the sport of cycling.
