National Interscholastic Cycling Association

The National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) develops interscholastic mountain biking programs for student-athletes and coaches across the United States to build strong minds, bodies, character, and communities through cycling. NICA provides leadership services and governance for local leagues to produce quality mountain bike events and ongoing team activities. Since 2009 NICA has served more than 70,000 middle and high school student-athletes. In addition to race and adventure events, NICA Leagues offer a variety of youth development opportunities through camps and clinics which provide opportunities for skill and character development for both student-athletes and coaches.
