The NorCal League adopted the NICA Adventure program in 2020 and is continuing to work with NICA on developing and expanding the program.

“NICA Adventure provides youth the opportunity to pursue the NICA mission through outdoor educational, experiential and social opportunities.”



“Allows youth to experience the benefits of mountain biking, camaraderie, community, and the outdoors. Reinforce our core values while building health and strength, learning new skills, and being part of a team of like-minded people through outdoor experiential education.

To consistently provide quality adventure experiences, NICA adventure program providers need excellent program management, facilitation, and risk management skills. A progression of activities and skills training is the focus of the NICA Adventure Program. In providing this training, NICA Adventure will transcend the physical and prepare the student-athlete to pursue their own lifelong adventure.”
