AIM Academy's new Mountain Biking Club includes 10 Upper School students who hail from throughout the Philadelphia area. The team, which competes in the Pennsylvania Interscholastic High School League competes in mountain bike races throughout the area with hundreds of other riders.
AIM Head Coach Anne Rock, who also serves on the PA League’s Core Leadership Crew, believes passionately that cycling belongs in schools. “NICA’s core values of inclusivity (no tryouts) and equality (nobody sits the bench) align with our beliefs as a school that quality education should be available to all students, regardless of differences. Not everybody can sustain running or swimming long enough to reap benefits, but everybody can bicycle. It’s good for ever body.”
