Skilled and dedicated coaches are the most important aspect of Nevada Interscholastic Cycling League mountain bike teams.  An Nevada League coach puts the safety and overall well-being of their student-athletes as the first priority.  NICA-licensed coaches are role models and teachers who are open to learning the best practices of youth mountain bike coaching and actively working to hone their leadership skills.

  • No experience is necessary to become an Nevada League coach.
  • We have several teams already established you could volunteer for – a great way to get a first-hand look at what managing a team is like.
  • We have the tools to help all coaches succeed.
  • We offer comprehensive training at our Leaders’ Summit events (March and April).
  • NICA coaches manuals provide detailed coaching instructions. (These are provided if you attend a Leaders’ Summit.)
  • Check out the Educational Resources provided by NICA. Their free webinars are very useful – ranging from information on the NICA Rulebook to How to Start and Manage a High School Team – NICA WEBINAR SERIES SCHEDULE

Be sure to sign up for the Nevada League Newsletter and stay up to date on Nevada League events, clinics, camps and news!

How do I get started?

All coaches are required to obtain a coaches license at one of four levels:

1. General Volunteer

2. Ride Leader

3. Assistant Coach

4. Head Coach

The path to becoming an Nevada League coach generally begins with volunteering for a local team or attending a Leaders’ Summit.
