Start a Club/Team

Administrators, teachers, parents, students and/or community members can start a NICA cycling club or team at their local high school or community. While it is not necessary that the person who initiates the club be a school “insider” (teacher or administrator), this can be very useful. A teacher, administrator or school volunteer within the school possesses certain advantages, such as knowledge of the school community, bureaucratic systems and channels, and how to access potential teen cyclists. Extensive cycling experience is not necessary. One should simply have the desire to introduce kids to the sport of mountain biking. Once you have decided to create a team, the League can help educate you and provide you with all the tools necessary to be an excellent coach.

What
Most mountain bike teams start small and grow quickly; it’s a tremendous challenge but highly rewarding! A Missouri League mountain bike team can be any size, as long as correct coach-to-student-athlete ratios are abided by.

MoBikeFed comment: Team registration for the 2020 season starts April 1st, the season runs July 1-Oct 31.

This is the first season for the Missouri Interscholastic Cycling League. Teams from Missouri schools/communities are welcome, as well as teams from adjoining states if those states do not have their own state Interscholastic Cycling League.\
