Who We Are

Founded in 2009, the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) develops interscholastic mountain biking programs for student-athletes across the United States.

Learn About NICA


Coach With NICA

NICA coaches are role models and teachers who are open to learning the best practices of youth mountain bike coaching and actively work to hone their leadership skills on and off the bike.

NICA exists because of the generous support of our founding partners, national partners, and donors like you. If the interscholastic cycling movement moves you, please consider donating and help get one more kid on a bike!

NICA is More Than Racing...

NICA began as a race organization. Over the years, NICA has expanded to be inclusive of many stories: from trail stewardship, to girls riding together, to adventure by bike, our programs showcase the depth of our community and initiatives.

Coach Education Program

The purpose of the NICA Coach Education Program is to deliver comprehensive training to NICA coaches that provides the knowledge, skills and abilities to provide quality programming to NICA student-athletes. Quality coach education is the cornerstone to developing great youth coaches who can support the mission and vision of NICA.
