Welcome to the Coach Zone
JOIN AN EXISTING TEAM
The best way to start racing is to join an existing team. Check our team list below to see if your school already has a team. If you can’t see your school listed, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help you find a team.
RACE AS AN INDIVIDUAL
While being part of a team is more fun, students can race as individuals. If you are interested in racing as an individual please email email@example.com to register.
Registration opens April 1, 2015
All teams, students, and coaches must register with the League.
The price for registering a team varies depending on the division of the team and if the Team Director meets certain licensing requirements (compliant or non-compliant). Compliant teams receive a $125 registration discount.

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.
