Coaches Resources

Coach Resources

Coaches are an essential component to successful mountain bike teams and we want to provide our support. Most coaches resources are located at the NICA Coaches Resources page, including the Team Starter Kit.

Coaches News

Important information about things like coach benefits, team sponsor deals, rule changes and race information are communicated via the Coaches eNews, an email newsletter. For the time being, coaches news is included in the Single Track Times newsletter. 

Texas Specific Resources

Coach Lanyards

NICA Texas Coach Lanyard

Race weekends can be packed with new faces and future best friends. Help other (parents/students/staff) at the races know who you are! Order yourself a few lanyards, edit our customizable name tag template and either print on heavy cardstock, or work with a local printer to make it official with plastic badges. 

The template can be modified in Canva with the creation of a free account. 

Race Day Lanyard

There are a lot of moving parts for every race weekend. We've created a template to help you keep your most information handy – from emergency phone numbers, to when your athletes need to arrive at staging. Spend less time looking for answers, and more time enjoying the race! 

The template can be modified in Canva with the creation of a free account.

Race Day Communications

ROCKY TALKIE logo

Official race day communications will be on hand-held radios. All teams should have at least one Rocky Talkie radio to receive real-time updates from race officials. While we do our best to provide updates on GroupMe and through PA announcements, those methods are not always available. Our partners at Talkie offer a 25% discount for all teams. Contact JJ for the discount code.

If your team has a financial hardship and cannot purchase a radio, contact the league director at jj@texasmtb.org.

Team Radio Channels

The league has pre-assigned radio channels to teams across the Texas league in an effort to reduce as much cross-communication. The listed channels are by no means a requirement. They are a recommendation to avoid having 3 teams sharing a single channel. Please reach out to the Mr. Communications (Mike) if your team feels an alternative channel may work better for you.
