Coaches Training

Skilled and dedicated coaches are the most important aspect of our program.  A Tennessee 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 Tennessee League coach. We provide training.
  • We have several coach supporters you can reach out to for mentoring.
  • We have the tools to help all coaches succeed.
  • We offer comprehensive training at our annual Leadership Summit in the Spring.
  • We also offer On-The-Bike Skills clinics throughout the year.

How do I get started?
