Joining The WCCC as a New Team?

The Western Collegiate Cycling Conference, one of eleven conferences under USA Cycling, includes colleges from California and Western Nevada. Athletes compete in Road, Mountain, Track and Cyclocross events across the two States and sends top riders to Collegiate Nationals each year.

The WCCC is constantly growing and we thank you for your interest in creating a team and joining the Western Collegiate Cycling Conference (The WCCC). The first step is to contact the Conference Director and introduce yourself and your interest in starting a collegiate team at your college. Next download and print out the two forms, which can be found in Resources. Fill out the first page yourself, if you do not have a USAC License # make an account online (Create Account Here) and write down the account number (6 digit number on your account). Contact your school to fill out the second page. Once everything is filled out either send the documents directly to USAC or forward to the Conference Director. The two forms on that page must be filled out and submitted to USAC prior to your team competing in a WCCC event.

If you have any questions, after reading the information at the above link, please contact the Conference Director, and they will be happy to provide any further assistance. (Contact Page)

Once you have submitted your forms please make sure you join the conference google group to receive news and informaiton about the WCCC. Make sure you send your new team's leader information to the Conference Director to be included in the Leader's Group.

We are excited to have you and your college represented in the WCCC.

Intro Clinic Series
The WCCC offers free structured intro clinics throughout the road season schedule. We use the curriculum that USAC is hoping to export around the country in the next few years, based on what Laurel Green has developed with the NorCal Early Bird Training Series. We are hoping to see how it travels by working working within our conference this season. We also have coaches at each event from the Women's Cycling Association (WCA).

These clinics will be at a handful of races, in conjunction with the criterium each weekend. For more information contact Virginia.

High School Racing

Competitive cycling has seen dramatic growth in the U.S. in recent years, with individual teams forming all across the country, as well as larger, fully-fledged leagues and race series in several states and regions. Many high school clubs and organizations have utilized USA Cycling’s existing network of experienced coaches, clubs, race organizers, and local associations to form organizations for underage riders. At the WCCC we are also working to tailor our resources to this emerging segment of USA Cycling members.

California, itself, has seen a huge number of participation from the High School leagues SoCal and NorCal High School MTBing. If you would like more information feel free to check out the links below. It is very cool to see such a huge spirit and growth for the sport!
