There’s a lot of information involved in becoming a Coach. Don’t worry, we’ve got your back! Dedicated Coaching Resources and a Coach Support Specialist will guide you every step of the way.
Many of our Coaches found that what they received from being a NICA Coach far outweighs what they give! Having an impact on the physical development and character growth of our kids is deeply rewarding.
Not at all! Many of the best coaches across the NICA leagues had no experience when they started.
It doesn’t matter one bit! Your coaching certification will give you all the skills you need to be an effective coach. Don’t worry, you got this!

We’re here to help! We have dedicated Coach Support resources to guide you through the right information at the right time. Try not to be overwhelmed!
