Formed in 2015, the Colonial Revolution Youth Mountain Bike Team is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization for co-ed athletes ages 8-18 from Williamsburg, Newport News and the surrounding counties of James City, Gloucester, York, New Kent, and beyond. Colonial Revolution is a member of the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA).
The team exists to provide student-athletes of all riding levels the guidance to ride safely in an inclusive, supportive environment, to develop an appreciation of our outdoor spaces, to achieve personal and competitive goals, and to develop the skills to maintain a healthy lifelong fitness all while building strong bodies, strong minds, and strong character.
We have 2 training seasons. Spring runs from approximately Mar 1st – Jun 1st and Summer/Fall runs Jul 1st – Nov 1st.
Colonial Revolution relies upon a 100% volunteer corps of coaches. Like most youth sports leagues, we draw our coaches from the parent pool and the local community. Most are not expert-level cyclists or racers, rather they draw from a wide range of professional & personal expertise to make the the team whole. Colonial Revolution coaches are trained & vetted with first aid/CPR, background checks, and abuse awareness.
We respond to all inquires and the only criteria for membership is a positive attitude and a thirst for adventure. Please consider the following and provide as much information as possible when making an inquiry to our program:
- Gender and age of youth
- Experience on a road or mountain bike? If so, how long and how confident? (Note: no experience necessary)
- How did you hear about us?
- Does your child have a good quality mountain bike in properly working condition that is assembled by a professional? Does it have a minimum of 26″ tires?
- Which season would your child be interested in joining?
