Ernie's is a proud sponsor of the newly formed Canton Stark Composite NICA team! NICA, or the National Interscholastic Cycling Association, develops interscholastic mountain biking programs for student-athletes across the country.
The Canton Stark Composite team invites Stark County students in grades 6-12 to ride with the team in its inaugural season in 2023. Part of the Ohio Interscholastic Cycling League, the team prioritizes getting butts on bikes and having fun. No tryouts. Everyone rides, regardless of skill level. Racing is optional. And if costs are a concern, help is available.
Regular summer practices will be held at Quail Hollow Park in Hartville during the summer, and team members can participate in cross-country style racing in the fall. The team is committed to being flexible, and riding with the team can be compatible with other activities, including fall sports.
