Youth Cycling Association was recognized as a National Youth Sports Strategy Champion by the United States Department of Health and Human Services in December 2020 for the role they play in the development of a more equitable sports landscape for future generations.
Youth Cycling Association is featured on the federal health.gov website as an important resource moving towards inclusion in sports. Link
Says founder and President of Youth Cycling Association, Sean Wilson, Ph.D., “Our organizations pride themselves on being about inclusion and acceptance. We will continue to guide our young riders into developing their own identity within the sport.”
Wilson is the founder of Youth Cycling Association, and also a second organization recognized by the Department of Health and Human Services, called GS Andiamo, a nonprofit locally providing cycling opportunities for youth of all ages and abilities in the Inland Empire. The listings on Health.gov solidify the place of Youth Cycling Association within a growing network of organizations partnering with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to improve access and opportunity in the youth sports landscape in America.
The National Youth Sports Strategy is the first federal roadmap to increase awareness of the benefits of youth sports participation as well as recruit and engage volunteers in youth sports programming.
