NICA is MORE Than Racing

NICA is guided by values of fun, inclusivity, equity, respect, and community. Every youth is empowered to be part of a thriving and engaged cycling community. We build strong minds, bodies, character, and communities through cycling.



We love and value our Coaches and their willingness to help share the stoke with the next generation! If you want to help coach, we will teach you how, no matter what your skill level is.

Coach Info


What is more powerful than a group of people coming together as a team to achieve a common goal? We welcome community members, parents, and/or students to start an AZ NICA youth mountain biking club or team in their local community.

Team Info


AZ NICA needs your help to get #MoreKidsOnBikes in Arizona. Please consider contributing your time to grow the love of cycling in our youth!


NICA exists because of the generous support of our founding sponsors, national sponsors and our donors. If the interscholastic cycling movement moves you, please consider donating and help get one more kid on a bike!

Arizona Mission + Vision + Values

AZ NICA is an emerging project of The National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) – 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. As one of many leagues across the country, we create, manage, and organize a variety of mountain biking programs and events to get #morekidsonbikes!

We promote a safe and supervised environment for Arizona’s student-athletes to practice their skills and shred while developing strong decision-making skills. Our goal is to have fun, build confidence, and push through physical and mental limits. We equally welcome all student-athletes into our league, to experience the thrill of cycling.

We sincerely hope the lessons our student-athletes learn on the trail, with their friends and coaches, will carry on with them for the rest of their lives. This is why we started the league; to share the stoke with the next generation and pass it on.
