Covid-19 Statement

Dear NICA Community:

NICA national and league leaders continue to assess how to best serve the NICA community as regions across the country are further addressing and relaxing COVID-19 pandemic restrictions. Presently NICA national, leagues and teams have two major objectives:  

Primary Objective: Reduce our participants, volunteer and staff potential of exposure by following, to the best of our ability, guidance from the CDC, State and local health departments as appropriate for NICA at the national, league and team level. 

Secondary Objective: Within our abilities to follow the limitations defined by these health and governmental organizations, continue to offer the NICA activities and events supporting the emotional and physical wellness of our participants as well as support participant connection to the NICA Community. 

Return to activities. The decisions of when and how to return to play will be made at the league level following, as best we are able, the rules and guidance from the local state, public health and school authorities to inform decision making.

Please check with your local league for details on league specific events, updates and more detailed regional guidance. Your league is the best source of information for region-specific updates and guidance and how COVID-19 will impact local NICA activities. 

On behalf of all of us at NICA, we send our best to our student-athletes, our coaches, volunteers and your families. We look forward to when, as one community, we all return to play.  

With Gratitude, 

Steve Matous 

NICA President
