St Croix Girls Team!
Fun in the Sun & Sail through the Trails
The St Croix Grirls Mountain Bike team started in 2019 with ten 6th-8th grade girls. We come from Hudson, River Falls, Prescott, Somerset and other western WI communities.
We have NICA certified women and men coaches who help us learn the skills needed to ride and provide mentorship to becoming confident middle school girls.
We want you to join us and our coaches!

What we DO
Learn how to ride
At practice we learn the skills needed to ride off-road on trails through the woods. We experiment with our skills until we become confident. Our coaches provide a safe and fun atmosphere when working on skills. The girls on the team build each other up and cheer each other on when we finally succeed in reaching our goals.
Have fun together
We like to have fun while riding our bikes together. Examples of fun include ice-cream fun rides, goofy games to learn skills, photo scavenger hunts, glitter and more. Fun is the number one ingredient in mountain biking or we wouldn’t be riding our bikes. Our coaches also teach us about how to set and achieve goals for ourselves. These can be as small as learning how to ride over a rock or large as committing to finishing a 3.5 mile race.
Our coaches prep us for learning how to race. Racing is fun as it provides the stage to show of our skills and progression in fitness to our family and friends. Every one gets the opportunity to race if they want to and our coaches make sure we are ready to reach for the stars. 3.5 miles for a race sounds really long when you first start, however by the time the races start the girls are already riding 4-6 miles at practice.
