    Are you interested in getting students involved in cycling?

    Helping them to:
    • Build interest in a lifelong sport?
    • Develop coordination and fitness?
    • Get outdoors and away from the computer/TV?
    • Be involved in a sport where everybody plays every minute; where there are no “benches” or “sidelines”?
    MiSCA is primarily focused on encouraging schools to form cycling clubs for the purpose of offering a healthy alternative to traditional sport teams, but MiSCA's ultimate objective is provide a mountain bike racing league for the entire state.

    • MiSCA plans on awarding a minimum of $1,000 college scholarships, sponsored by Cannondale and Michigan Youth Cycling, to the MiSCA male and female Varsity championship winners.
    • Separate awards at each race are given to MiSCA racers.
    • MiSCA is partnering with area bike shops and industry sponsors to offer exclusive discounts to MiSCA registered teams.

    MiSCA recognizes the challenges of getting schools to accept cycling as a club or team sport and has come up with a support team to help overcome the objections faced when trying to establish a school team. We have also developed an alternative or “composite” team concept that will allow the formation of scholastic teams other than those sponsored by a school. These clubs could be sponsored by youth groups, bike shops or individuals.

    Representatives from MiSCA will be on hand to give a brief presentation on the program and how you can get your student involved or help to start a team. Please come and join us to hear about this great program that is spreading across the state.
