We want program registration to be easy and fair. We are transitioning all programs to a three week pre-registration period. With this new system, everyone will have three weeks to pre-register their participant(s) for Little Bellas. After pre-registration closes, one of two things will happen: a) if the program is full or over capacity, we will use a random selection process to determine who gets in; or b) we will transition to our usual first come first serve registration to fill the remaining slots.
We hope this new process will ease some stress and help create a more fair registration system for all Little Bellas girls and families. See more information on our blog here.
It's summer and what a fabulous time to get outside, on bikes and on trails in Pittsburgh! The weather is awesome and the trails primed and ready for sweet riding. What better way to soak up as much summer as possible and get girls out riding their bikes than Little Bellas Pittsburgh Weekly Program.
This program meets at Angora Gardens and offers eight recurring mountain biking sessions throughout the season to allow each girl to make new friends, learn new skills, and build confidence, all in a positive, fun environment. Whether it's riding the dirt trails, having snacks, or navigating their way through the bike limbo tunnel, the program creates an environment built around having fun and learning the skills of mountain biking.
Girls and mentors (we mentor, we don't coach) will ride once a week and work on a skills mountain bike progression through different activities, rides, and games. These girls will be given healthy challenges in a friendly, fun environment. This program is for riding and fun and is not focused on competition.
Financial assistance is available if needed and we also have equipment available through our Gear Up program! Please communicate any of these needs when filling out the registration form for the program.
Pittsburgh Program Lead
Kayla is a baton twirler who discovered a new love for the outdoors in 2018. She set aside her baton, strapped on a helmet and the rest is history. Knowing from her dance training that bad habits can be learned easily and difficult to break, Kayla took private lessons and attended camps to obtain proper mountain bike skills and knowledge. When she isn’t working or biking, Kayla enjoys baking, crafting, and reading. She has been working with young girls teaching color guard for seven years and she is so excited to help the Little Bellas girls learn, grow and form new friendships.
