Our TTC goal for 2023 is 4,000 hours - Let's do this!
Thanks to everyone who participated in 2022, we superseded our goal of 3,000 hour and reached 3,540 hours. That was just over double what our 2021 goal was- WOW! With such amazing effort from our student-athletes, coaches, and family member, we are raising the bar once again and bringing our 2022-2023 season total up to 4,000. We will hold three Shovel Fit Days across the League to give back to our race venues and give you all an opportunity to participate.
Additionally, we encourage you to participate through scheduled trail works days through your local trail advocacy organization.
Lastly, want to feel the reward of your hard work through these opportunities? Be sure to log your TTC hours in the Pit Zone so that you and/or your team will be considered during the Teen Trail Corp Challenge. More info on this coming soon.”

Our NorCal Teen Trail Corps [TTC] program provides student-athletes, coaches, and teams opportunities to get involved in bike and trail advocacy in their communities. As mountain bikers, and outdoor enthusiasts in general, we believe in the importance of giving back in order to serve and protect the places we love to play. We also believe that volunteering to better the environment is instrumental in positive character development, so we are committed to providing avenues for our NorCal League family to get involved. In 2019 we began asking coaches to track their TTC bike and trail advocacy hours in the NICA Pit Zone so we could better understand the impact of this program; watching the numbers grow each year has been incredibly rewarding!
Ready to get started? There are a number of ways to get involved in our Teen Trail Corps Program:
- Ask your coach to organize a trail or advocacy project for your team, or organize one yourself. Use these resources to help, and of course be sure your coach tracks everyone’s hours in your team Pit Zone so you get credit.
- Bookmark this page to find frequent updates and opportunities.
- Reach out to the trail advocacy organization in your community and find out how you can get involved. Volunteer with them and send your coach your hours.
- Submit your volunteer info to NICA and earn badges, not to mention get great experience for your resume or college application.
- Share these resources with your parents and coaches
