Coaches are the backbone of our program, and we are dedicated to ensuring they have the support and education to be successful. The purpose of the NICA Coach License Program is to offer comprehensive training to coaches so that they are equipped to provide quality programming to student-athletes that meet national standards and best practices while developing strong mind, body, and character.

On-the-Bike-Skills training sessions are intended to instruct coaches on the skills, modeling, and teaching of riding skills, allowing the coaches to lead by example.

During OTBS training, participants will be instructed on two primary coach functions:

  • How to teach student-athletes bike handling skills, development, and refinement.
  • How to become proficient at teaching student-athletes skills, development, and advancement.

On-the-Bike Skills 101 (a Level 2 requirement) teaches coaches how to teach fundamental mountain bike skills. While On-the-Bike Skills 201 is designed for those coaches who actively teach skills for their team the opportunity to learn how to teach more progressive and advanced skills to their student-athletes. Adventure Training focuses on experiential teaching techniques to meet every learning style. All training opportunities meet the coaches where they are while giving them the confidence and progressive steps to teach fundamentals through advanced mountain biking skills and experiential teaching techniques to accommodate different learning styles and create positive learning environments for young riders. OTBS 101 completion is required for NICA Coach License Levels 2 and 3.

Prerequisites:

  • Classes are open to coaches (new and returning) affiliated with the Florida Interscholastic Cycling League only.
  • Pit Zone Registration Must Be Completed prior to attending. To access Pit Zone, contact your Head Coach.
  • OTB 101 is a prerequisite to register for OTB 201.

REMINDER: These courses include an online module in the Coach Courses section of your PitZone and should be completed before attending the in-person OTBS. Sessions will be held rain or shine. Please bring appropriate riding gear for the weather.
