NICA is guided by values of 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 promote a safe and inviting atmosphere for all student athletes to learn to ride and race bikes as part of a team. We want to provide an outdoor activity where there are no benchwarmers and everyone participates at the level they are most comfortable while improving their physical fitness.
Our goal is to have fun, build confidence, and to teach students to set their own goals to conquer personal challenges. We welcome all student-athletes into our league, to experience the life-long joy of cycling.
Mississippi 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!
Coaches are the backbone of our program and we appreciate your 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.
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 MS NICA youth mountain biking club or team in their local community.
MS NICA needs your help to get #MoreKidsOnBikes in Mississippi. Please consider contributing your time to grow the love of cycling in our youth!
Check out our upcoming events! Our inaugural season kicks off in 2024, and we’ve got the Leader’s Summit just around the corner!
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!
