Check out these resources for all of our volunteer coaches!

Pit Zone

The Pit Zone is an invitation only registration system. When your coach invites you to register with the team you will receive an invitation email from the NICA Pit Zone.

OTB Classes

No, this doesn't mean over-the bars. On-The-Bike 101 is the first in a series of progressive skills drills for NICA coaches.  You must be registered as a coach in PitZone to participate.  OTB 101 and 201 is required for level 2 and 3 coaches certification.  

The Trailhead

The Trailhead is a place for stories, pro-tips, resources, and more. Much of the content you’re accustomed to seeing in the monthly NICA coaches news will now be available at The Trailhead, with the goal that it exists as a signpost: a place to go to make it easier to navigate and find the coach content you need – (see what we did there?)

First Aid & CPR

Due to the inherent risks in Mountain Biking, the NICA Coach Licensing Program has high standards for first aid training. First aid training requirements vary by Coach License Level.  Click the button below for a list of upcoming NICA approved first aid and CPR classes.
