Welcome to the Coach Zone
THINKING ABOUT COACHING?
Watch this brief video and hear from our coaches. Now that you are super stoked to get involved, consider helping your local team or starting a team in your area.
NICA's Coach Licensing Program ensures that all adults working with our students have the knowledge needed to be a positive influence. NICA licenses also protect volunteers and coaches with comprehensive insurance and protect our youth with background checks. To become a coach start with License Level 1 and take it one step at a time throughout the year as opportunities arise to complete additional requirements. Please contact League Director Doug Bedient (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions.
