Who we are

Founded in 2009, the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) develops interscholastic mountain biking programs for student-athletes across the United States. Learn more here.

Coaches Resources

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. Learn more here.

Get Involved

Want to get involved, volunteer your time or donate to support getting more kids on bikes? Learn more here.

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!

#TBT to last year's @utahhsmtb State Championships in St. George where over 1750 student-athletes participated! The varsity girls field charging here had 50 student-athletes!

We're excited to see what happens this weekend when student-athletes from Utah's 3 regions come together for the State Championships in Cedar City! Good luck everyone!! #TBT #NICA10 #morekidsonbikes #moregirlsonbikes #utahhsmtb #statechampionships #mountainbikeracing #ridelikeagirl

Last week we announced 4 new leagues, which brings the total number of leagues to 31! #TBT to 2001 with the original @berkeleyhsmtb racing in the original @norcalleague ... from one team, to one league to now over 1,000 teams in 31 leagues! We've come a long way -- but there's still work to be done to get #morekidsonbikes!
