2020 Tennessee Adventure & Leadership Mountain Bike Camp
Tennessee Interscholastic Cycling League is launching its 3rd Annual Adventure and Leadership Mountain Bike Summer Camp. Come experience our mountain bike-fueled, co-ed adventure with some of the leagues favorite coaches in a healthy, supportive environment. Athletes will have daily leadership opportunities and training to improve their abilities on and off the bike. Camp reinforces the NICA mission and spirit by building off of your existing NICA experience.
St. Andrews-Sewanee School and the adjoining Univ of the South Sewanee Perimeter Trail systems will provide the setting for challenging and rewarding days of adventure. The variety of trails, vistas and other natural features promise to inspire athletes from any corner of the United States.
Evening presentations give the opportunities to connect 1 on 1 with mountain bike leaders from many areas of expertise including: trail building and maintenance, trail conservation, taking cycling to college, adventure-focused biking and hands on bike building for a Tennessee Interscholastic Cycling fundraiser auction to help kick off this season.
We’ll be keeping the energy and fun-levels high with off the bike games, bonfires and great SAS dining hall food! What better place to grow relationships with NICA friends both new and old?
