National Interscholastic Cycling Association
A national league that develops high school Mountain biking programs for student athletes across the United States held a pep rally meeting to discuss the formation of a local league at the Anniston Museum Complex last night.
The National Interscholastic Cycling Association provides leadership, services and governance for local leagues to produce quality mountain bike events, and encourages character and physical development for students on the bike. Alabama league Director Eddie Freyer, says there is a lot of interest in Anniston and he can’t wait to get more kids riding bikes.
Founded in 2009, NICA will become part of local high school systems by forming student clubs that aren’t part of the Alabama High School Athletic Association, but will provide opportunities for student athletes to compete in individual and team races. The local league of NICA is creating is the 13th league. And, there are already four races scheduled for Spring of 2015.
