You don't need to be an ex-pro or even a competitive mountain biker to be a successful coach. In fact, many of our most successful coaches don't have extensive racing experience. NICA provides coaches with necessary training and resources to lead and manage a team. Check out NICA's coach licensing program and comprehensive training program. 



Once you are a registered coach, you have access to an abundance of resources. Additionally, you are fully insured when working with student-athletes at all practices and races. As a way of saying thank you, NICA also provides you industry benefits on bikes & equipment. Check out all the resources available to you as a NICA coach.
