The Arizona Cycling Association is a locally incorporated 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was founded in 2012.  The ACA is self-governed, self-funded and self-supported. We facilitate the development of interscholastic cycling teams for grades 6-12 and provide the education, training, licensing and insurance for student-athletes, coaches and volunteers. The league produces a high-quality mountain bike racing experience that emphasizes the value of all participants, camaraderie among peers, a positive sporting behavior and the cultivation of health over competition.


Every Arizona teen is empowered to strengthen mind, body and character through the life-long sport of cycling.


Establish a fun, enduring and relevant interscholastic mountain biking program that improves Arizona’s communities and lives of Arizona’s youth.
