LEADERS SUMMIT 2016

Register now!

Dates: Sat. April 16 & Sun. April 17, 2016.
Location: Bloomington, MN

Looking to direct, coach,or become more involved? We encourage you and all coaches to attend the 2016 Leaders Summit.

Individuals from other states are welcome to attend. Plus, there are no prerequisites or coaching experience required! Just a passion to get kids on bikes.

The primary goal for the Leaders’ Summit is to license parents and adults as new coaches for the MN League. In addition, training is offered for ride leaders, assistant coaches, or volunteers. This is an ideal opportunity for new and seasoned coaches to share thoughts and opinions – and the perfect environment to get charged up for the coming season.

New for 2016: a parallel track is available for returning coaches that will focus on topics after a team is up and running.

Registration will open on Mon. Feb. 8, 2016.
