NJ NICA needs YOU!

Want to get involved?

This is step #1!

The New Jersey Interscholastic Cycling League’s annual Leaders Summit will bring together coaches, assistant coaches, ride leaders, and parent volunteers—both new and experienced—to develop skills and knowledge, share strategies, and build community.

We have an amazing weekend planned. Curriculum for new coaches will focus on establishing a team in your area or school, and building the foundation for "101" level skills instruction. Seasoned coaches will find topics geared towards expanding license levels, including NICA approved first aid training from SOLO, the oldest continuously operating school of wilderness medicine in the world. Our league will be the first to receive this training, which is mandatory for level 3 coaches.

For more information and to register, please visit our registration pages on Eventbrite:

New Coach Registration Page
(If you have never attended a NICA Summit or 101 skills class, this is for you)

Returning Coach Registration Page
(If you have attended a summit and 101 class, this is for you)

We have worked very hard to keep costs as low as possible, and have scholarships available for those who may need financial assistance. If you have questions or concerns, please email ken@newjerseymtb.org

Start a New Team!

Now is the time to start thinking about starting a team in your community. You don't have to be an expert mountain biker to become a coach - as long as you bring enthusiasm and commitment to the table, we will take care of the rest.

We currently have new teams forming in Atlantic County, Monmouth County, Hammonton and a few other locations. We need representation in many more areas of the state! To find out more, please contact League Director Ken Seebeck.

Sponsor the League!

We are always looking for new organizations that would be willing to step up as league sponsors. We provide our sponsors with premium exposure to New Jersey's active youths and their families, and our sponsors love to help us introduce today's youth to an active lifestyle, and the lifelong sport of cycling. To find out more, please contact our VP of Development, David Kahl.
