Annual Coaching Dues
NICA Coaches start as volunteers. Most teams stay 100% volunteer based, however some developed teams can offer to cover the various cost of being a NICA Coach. These cost range from annual NICA Coach fee, one time background check, annual coach education seminars, first aid training and travel to the races. Scholarships might be available through the Idaho League, check with your League Director.
