Coach Benefits

Licensed Coaches:

At NICA, we realize that volunteers who enter our Coach Licensing Program are making both a significant financial and time commitment.  In appreciation for all that you do, and thanks to the generosity of NICA sponsors, we are able to offer the following benefits to coaches who successfully complete the NICA Coach Licensing Program.

NICA and our sponsors wish to thank you, coaches, for your commitment to interscholastic mountain bike programs.  Every NICA program relies on the support, enthusiasm, and energy of the coaches and interscholastic cycling would not be thriving without your commitment.
