Skilled and dedicated coaches are the most important aspect of Pennsylvania High School Cycling League mountain bike teams. A Pennsylvania League coach puts the safety and overall well-being of their student-athletes as the first priority. NICA-licensed coaches are role models and teachers who are open to learning the best practices of youth mountain bike coaching and actively working to hone their leadership skills.

  • No experience is necessary to become a Pennsylvania League coach.
  • We already have teams established and you could volunteer for – a great way to get a first-hand look at what managing a team is like.
  • We offer comprehensive training at our Leaders’ Summit events (March and April).
  • Check out the Educational Resources provided by NICA.

Be sure to sign up for the League Newsletter and stay up to date on Pennsylvania League events, clinics, camps and news!
