NICA Coach Licensing Program

The NICA Coach License Program provides NICA Leaders' Summit training (in-person coach training), curriculum development, membership support, and ongoing training to coaches and leagues. As part of NICA, coaches have access to coach discounts based on their license level.

NICA Pit Zone

The NICA Pit Zone is an invitation-only registration system (Pit Zone FAQs). When your coach invites you to register with the team, you will receive an invitation email from the NICA Pit Zone. (The invite comes from donotreply@nationalmtborg.) If you can't find this email, be sure to check your spam folder. If you did not receive it, check with your coach to make sure they invited you with the correct email address.  


Once you receive your invite, click on the invitation link and follow the registration process, filling in all information. Make sure to sign the electronic waivers and pay your registration fees. You will not be "Practice Ready" until your waivers are signed and your league fees are paid.
