CAMTB Teen Trail Ambassador Program

This initiative provides a cohort-based internship model for junior and senior high school student-athletes who are interested in building their resumes while riding, connecting, and taking meaningful action with other California-based student-athletes. 

The program aims to educate student-athletes about the world of cycling advocacy and inspire a culture of service and personal action. Ambassadors will work alongside our advocacy team, trail partners, and industry representatives, in pursuit of more and better bike-friendly trails in California.

Our TTC goal for 2024 is 6,000 hours

Thanks to everyone who participated in 2023, we crushed our goal of 4,000 hours and reached 5,030 hours. With such amazing efforts from our student-athletes, coaches, and family member, we will be raising the bar once again with our 2024 season goal. We will hold some Shovel Fit Days throughout the season to give back to our race venues and give you all an opportunity to participate in trail days.

We encourage you to volunteer with your local trail advocacy organization. Please reach out to us if you have any questions about this.

Lastly, 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 Challenges. More info on these 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!
