Comprehensive Leadership for Youth Coaches
The Texas High School Mountain Bike League’s annual Leaders Summit brings together coaches, assistant coaches, ride leaders, and parent volunteers—both new and experienced—to develop skills and knowledge, share strategies, and build community. This conference will promote a holistic approach to coaching that creates an environment in which young people can grow and thrive. This is a great opportunity to spend a weekend in the company of peers and energize for the upcoming season.
Includes: breakfast and lunch each day, Coaches Manual, Conference Materials and special discount pricing on First Aid Kits and Camelbaks. Registration does not include lodging. We are working on special discounted rates at local hotels and bed and breakfasts. Details will be posted on this page.
October 8 (Saturday): Leadership and Coaching Seminars
Saturday seminars cover the nuts and bolts of working with high school and middle school student athletes in the context of a NICA mountain bike club. Saturday’s seminars cover basic knowledge all NICA Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches, and Ride Leaders should be aware of and incorporate into their duties. Time and weather permitting, we will have the opportunity to ride the exclusive trail system along Lake Austin at St. Stephen’s Episcopal School.

This clinic offers a once in a lifetime opportunity to learn to learn the progressive steps needed to teach anyone (even yourself) both basic and advanced mountain biking skills. You will also learn about experiential teaching techniques, how to accommodate different learning styles, and how to create a positive learning environment for young riders. The majority of this clinic will be held outdoors, so please bring your bike and appropriate riding and safety gear for the weather.
