We are members of the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Mountain Bike Cycling League (PICL) which is a member of the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA). Riders will be training to ride/race on singletrack trails in state parks and national forests. NICA courses are designed to challenge riders physically, yet not put them in harm's way.
The five core values of NICA are:
There are 3 levels of NICA certifications and all our coaches are NICA Level 1 certified. This training includes: Federal/State criminal background checks, Pennsylvania Child Welfare Checks, CDC Heads Up Concussion Training, and NICA Risk-Management. NICA Level 2 & 3 certified is completing all bike skills teaching/training, leadership summits, and First Aid/CPR Certifications.
