NICA Leader Summit (Leadership Essentials) @ Avimor Community Center
Apr 13 all-day

Who

The 1-Day Leader Summit is for head coaches or team directors starting a team or taking over a team. It is also appropriate for coaches seeking to advance their NICA license level or obtain CEUs to maintain their current license.

  • Not required for Level 1 coaches
  • Not required for level 2 coaches, but optional attendance can be used as 8 CEUs toward licensing requirements
  • Required for coaches first obtaining a Level 3 license; optional attendance can be used as 8 CEUs toward maintaining current license

What

The IICL annual Leader Summit brings together coaches, assistant coaches, ride leaders, parent volunteers, team directors and anyone interested in learning more about our coaching and teaching methods to develop skills and knowledge, share strategies and build community. This conference will promote a well-rounded approach to coaching that creates an environment in which high school and middle school students can grow and thrive. This is a great opportunity to spend a day in the company of peers and energize for the upcoming season.

This 1-day event is required for a first-time Level 3 coach and will also fulfill the continuing education requirements for NICA Coach Licensing Levels 2-3. Additional requirements for NICA Coach Licensing Levels 2-3 can be found on NICA’s Coach Licensing Program page.

Coaches can combine this Leader Summit with the NICA On-The-Bike Skills Training (see below) on Sunday, or can link this with another Saturday NICA On-The-Bike Skills Training,  providing the opportunity for coaches to obtain all required NICA training (excluding WFA) for a Level 2 or above license without the need to attend a Sunday course.

Registration fees include breakfast and lunch and all seminars/training.

There will be an optional group ride after the completion of all classroom sessions.
