What happens when League Cycling Instructors, School Teachers, National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) Coaches and USA Cycling Coaches get together in a classroom? They learn the concept of bringing their passion to school P.E. classes as a regular program.
These seasoned bicycle riders are taking a YES SCI Level 3 course to provide Professional Development (“Train-the-Trainer”) to middle school teachers. These teachers will then present the YES-BLAST Volume 1 curriculum to their students. This is in anticipation of a Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) grant that will cover 30 middle schools. YES is excited about this grant, which begins the 2017-2018 school year.
