The GRiT (Girls Riding Together) program is a NICA national initiative aimed at increasing the overall participation rate of female student-athletes and female coaches across NICA to 35% by 2033.
Our GRiT Coordinator, supported by a team of women coaches making up our GRiT Committee, will work to increase female participation at the coach and student-athlete level through various outreach events across Southern California.
We all know that girls are stronger when we support each other and lift each other up, and with that, Golden State South ICL will start a GRiT Ambassador Program that empowers female student-athletes to mentor other female student-athletes across the league. Setting time aside for “girls only” events allows our female student-athletes and coaches to get to know each other and strengthen our mountain biking community.
Please contact us if you have any questions regarding GRiT or how to get involved.
