NJ Girls Rock! Was chartered to help promote the participation of young women in the mountain biking community and the New Jersey Interscholastic Cycling League (NJICL).
Our mission is to empower young women and build their confidence through mountain biking. This will be done by helping introduce young girls into the NJICL, providing opportunities to develop mentor relationships with experienced female mountain bikers, retaining girls by inspiring confidence in them and building the community of female riders in the NJICL and the state of New Jersey.
Resources that we provide include:
- an invitation only forum on slack.com where girls can post questions to experienced riders and coaches. The site forum is at: www.girlsrocknj.slack.com. To request access, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Mentors for team coaches and female student-athletes
- Experienced women ride volunteers to assist on team try-it-out rides
- Girls-only rides will be provided once a month starting in the Spring of 2017. More information on these rides will be made available to all participants in the closed slack.com forum referenced above.
Teams are currently recruiting. Girls interested in joining NJICL can reach out to the team director in their area for a try-it-out. Check out the team map HERE. Or email email@example.com for assistance in getting involved.
