Who We Are
Founded in 2009, the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) develops interscholastic mountain biking programs for student-athletes across the United States.
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.
Leagues fulfill NICA's mission, improving the lives of teens and positively impacting communities by providing a high-quality, safe and fun interscholastic mountain bike program.
NICA exists because of the generous support of our founding sponsors, national sponsors and our donors. If the interscholastic cycling movement moves you, please consider donating and help get one more kid on a bike!
