CSHS – The National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) a youth development organization governing high school mountain biking in the United States, announced earlier this year, the Arizona High School Cycling League as one of three new leagues in its expanding national program. Arizona's entry into the national association marks a significant step towards NICA’s mission of providing high school mountain biking coast to coast by 2020.

The Arizona League, based in Scottsdale, brings the NICA movement to 10 leagues, spanning 9 states, including (in chronological order): California, Colorado, Washington, Texas, Utah, Minnesota, and the 2012 inductees Tennessee, New York and Arizona.

A Team is now forming for CCUSD students to participate in the league’s Fall 2013 season. All high school students from Cactus Shadows or home school students living in CCUSD are eligible to join. All levels of rider are welcome and no experience is necessary. Official activities for the Team will start in May and run through the summer.
