Join a team

Connect with others who share a passion for riding

We are reinventing youth sports. NICA teams create space for student-athletes to grow into their best selves, both on and off the bike. In our league, there are no tryouts; there is no bench. Everyone rides. Want to give it a try?

Become a coach

Join a community of enthusiastic leaders

NICA coaches are role models and teachers open to learning about the best practices of youth mountain bike coaching and actively work to hone their leadership skills on and off the bike. Sound like you?

Join the movement

We’re exercising our right to change how Nebraska kids see themselves, each other, and what they’re capable of.
Want to help?

Our core values

Fun

Come as you are. We love the weirdos, the curious, the adventure seekers.

Inclusivity

We’ll help you find your favorite way to ride, for fun, competition – or both!

Equity

How kids are grouped together for competition is explained here.

Respect

You’ll be challenged, but never forced. You deserve to learn at your own pace and to love riding your bike as much as we do!

Community

We’re not just a team, we’re a community of adult volunteers, kids, and teens. Together we host events, coach, and explore the trails.
