Team Booger is built on a foundation of learning, sharing, and working together to make a positive impact in the lives of others. It’s the heart of our annual scholarship, the focus of our August Team Camp, and the link between our mountain bike and cyclocross seasons.
In addition to riding, training, and racing together, The Booger Academy is a program of studies fostering skills of communication, empathy, self-awareness, and problem-solving. We promote personal growth in a positive, inclusive environment. We strive for a culture of trust, connection, empathy, and empowerment to affect change. We believe in everyone’s ability to use their strengths, gifts, and interests to collaborate and advocate.
Booger Academy is a place for all riders to develop mindful intentions around their goals, to encourage collaboration and teamwork, and to inspire and support concrete actions through leadership and advocacy.
Accesible + Approachable
We’re all busy with school, family commitments, and other sports, and so the Booger Academy is designed to be as functional as possible through self-guided usage. The fullest experiential opportunities will come through in-person and collaborative learning opportunities, so each lesson will be offered as a guided experience for the group as well.
* We pull much of our materials for our courses of learning from lessons from Atomic Habits by James Clear, Genius of Athletes by Noel Brick and Scott Douglas, and The Mindful Athlete by George Mumford.
