NICA Annual Report

With the passing of another year, NICA continues to achieve great success. Over the past year, we successfully launched competitive racing series in Georgia, Wisconsin and Virginia. We also welcomed both Nevada and Idaho into our growing family of leagues and began outreach efforts in these states to ensure robust participation in 2015. All told, over the past year, we have seen a 51% growth in student-athlete participation and an incredible 40% growth in our licensed coaches since 2013.
