The New York High School Mountain Bike League’s annual Leaders Summit brings together coaches, assistant coaches, ride leaders, and parent volunteers—both new and experienced—to develop skills and knowledge, share strategies, and build community. This conference will promote a holistic approach to coaching that creates an environment in which young people can grow and thrive. This is a great opportunity to spend a weekend in the company of peers and energize for the upcoming season.

The majority of this clinic will be held outdoors, so please bring your bike and appropriate riding and safety gear for the weather.
