Student Leadership Council

A cornerstone of MiSCA’s mission is “to create a fun environment where everyone can experience the joys of the outdoors”. We are looking for motivated student-athletes to join the Student Leadership Council (SLC) to help us dream up and execute new ideas that will make MiSCA better for current and future mountain bikers.

The Student Leadership Council (SLC) is an opportunity for student-athletes to learn and serve in the areas of leadership, advocacy, and stewardship to advance youth mountain biking through MiSCA.

The SLC will be comprised of up to three teams: Communications & Marketing, Environmental & Trail Stewardship, and Programming & Skills Development, each led by a student leader. Student-athletes will participate on at least one team, volunteer at least 10 hours (including meetings), and significantly contribute to at least one project within their SLC team. In addition, all SLC members will have the chance to review and provide feedback on items like new league rules and race series changes.
