NICA recognizes that the coaches are the ones that make interscholastic mountain bike teams possible.  In light of that, NICA wants to provide any support it can to coaches, new and experienced alike.  Below you will find some resources that you may find helpful when starting or managing a middle and/or high school mountain bike team.  You may also find some League specific resources at your League’s website.

Coach Licensing Program

The NICA Coach Licensing Program is intended to ensure that all coaches are sufficiently knowledgable so as to provide a safe and positive experience for all student-athletes.  To learn more about the program, please visit our Coach Licensing Program page. Thanks to our generous NICA sponsors, licensed coaches enjoy a number of discounts and other perks. These benefits vary by license level and also by League, click here for more information.
