Though racing is the most visible part of the SoCal League one of the most IMPORTANT parts is the growing Teen Trail Corps program! Please help us ensure we have more and better trails to ride from now into the future! We STRONGLY encourage riders to get involved and become Teen Trail Captains! We believe this initiative will be one of the most important legacies of interscholastic mountain biking. The Teen Trail Corps program is under revision and we expect the refreshed program to premier by December 1, 2018!
