NICA Adventure

NICA Adventure supports leagues and NICA Coaches in applying the principles of adventure and experiential education. It is a crucial component in providing resources to meet the social and emotional needs of all the student-athletes in our leagues. Adventure helps our student-athletes build relationships and interpersonal skills to serve them beyond their time with NICA.

NICA Adventure Exists:

  • To create a progression of activities and experiences that provide youth the space to pursue challenges and their best self.
  • To prepare youth for their own life-long adventures.


NICA Adventure allows youth to experience the benefits of mountain biking, camaraderie, community, and the outdoors. Reinforce our core values while building health and strength, learning new skills, and being part of a team of like-minded people through outdoor experiential education.

Adventure permeates team and league culture. Coaches apply the Adventure philosophy within their practices and events, and the league includes Adventure activities on race weekends and at day camps.
