Coach Registration

The first step to become a NICA coach is to speak with your local team’s head coach or team director, who will send you an invite to register in Pit Zone as a coach. This personalized invite is sent via email.

Once you click the link to begin your Pit Zone registration as a coach, you will be prompted to do the following:

  1. Pay a coach membership fee (this fee covers administrative costs and your insurance coverage as a NICA coach)
  2. Electronically sign NICA’s liability and release waivers
  3. Agree to NICA’s Adult Code of Conduct
  4. Initiate a background check through Sterling Volunteers

The process is fairly straightforward and prompts in Pit Zone will lead you through each step. If you need assistance, please contact our Pit Zone registration team via the link below:
