Coach License FAQ’s

Frequently Asked Questions

    1. There has been ongoing confusion in using the same naming conventions (Head Coach, Assistant Coach, Ride Leader and General volunteer) for both team roles and licensure levels. For example, with the past method, your team might have 8 coaches with “Head Coach” license levels, but only one person filling that role. With the new method, the same team would have 7 Level 3 coaches and one “Head Coach.”
    2. NICA is looking to provide more opportunities for NICA Coaches. You will see new training requirements for Levels 1 – 3, and in the future, new opportunities to gain higher levels of licensure.
