Student-athletes, you’ve already won. Throughout this upcoming season you're gonna make new friends, explore new trails, find out who you are and most of all, have fun. We’re reinventing middle and high school sports, and you're at the forefront, congratulations.
Coaches, you’ve taken on a very important task — you must guide your student-athletes through this season and empower them to not only be strong athletes, but strong people as well. NICA is nothing without you. We can't thank you enough for taking time out of your busy lives to lead the next generation of mountain bikers.
Parents, we can’t wait to see you later this year at our weekend events. Thank you for supporting your student-athletes and the Delaware Interscholastic Cycling League. Your support means the world to us (and them).

Are You Ready?
We’re ready. Are You?
Team practices have started! In order to participate this year, student-athletes must be “Practice Ready”. Practice Ready means student-athletes have: • Completed their registration information in the Pit Zone • Paid their NICA and league fees • Signed their electronic waivers You know a student-athlete is Practice Ready if you see a note that says “Practice Ready: YES” under their "Rider Information" on the left hand side of Pit Zone.
Please message us or your head coach if you have any questions!
Teamwork makes the dreamwork. We had a crazy idea and vision that started in 2019 to get more kids on bikes in Delaware. Our NICA neighbors in New Jersey, Maryland and Pennsylvania helped show us the way and our inaugural season is here! Meet our team of amazing humans that have helped make our dream a reality. We are small but mighty! Are you passionate about cycling and making a difference in the lives of student athletes? You just might be the amazing human that we are looking for. Visit the Join Our Team Page to find out how to get involved.
