NEW Coaches Needed!
Remember, it takes a large number of coaches to ensure we can provide the safe instruction and risk management to have a season. For every 8 student-athletes, we need at least 3 coaches, if not more… and with more than 100 riders on our team, well that’s a lot of coaches!
Coaching is a fun way to be part of the team, get on your bike and watch the student- athletes improve their skills and fitness. Previous coaching experience is not required and we have a number of experienced coaches who can help you get up to speed. If you are interested in Coaching in the Idaho League – read more about it today and then request an invite from your BBMTB Team Director, Carolyn, firstname.lastname@example.org
NOTE: The Idaho League heavily subsidizes all coach training costs and the BBMTB Team reimburses Level 2 & 3 coaches up to $300/ year for coach licensing and training expenses.
Coach Training Opportunities!
The NICA PitZone is also open for Coaches to begin or resume the process to ensure you are ready and able to help lead our team on the trails this season. The NICA PitZone contains a variety of important information and process requirements. Check out the new Coach Licensing Requirements here: NICA Coach Licensing Program
If you are a returning coach, please sign in to the NICA PitZone and start your licensing process. The Idaho League pays your coach licensing fee; you will only need to pay the Background Check fee to get started.
For returning NICA Licensed Coaches who want to maintain Level 2 & 3 certification, the Idaho League is offering multiple Wilderness First Aid Courses. Check the IICL Calendar of Events and sign up for a weekend that fits your schedule. Also, they have added additional Leadership Summit dates in May; see the Online Leaders Summit Schedule here. This is a one-time requirement for Level 3 Licensing. Read more details about the Leadership Summit in the January – IDAHO COACHES NEWS.
