The Georgia League, a mountain biking league for middle and high school students, was recognized in June as one of the fastest growing leagues in the Southeast by its umbrella organization, the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA). NICA also recognized the GA League for leading the way in female student and adult recruitment through its Crank Sisters program. The GA League began its season on September 11th by doubling its participation numbers for the second season in a row. Over 400 registered student-athletes, 150 coaches, and 30 teams from across the state, and 2 in South Carolina, are participating in the 2016 season.
