Yes. All coaches undergo annual background checks, concussion, safety, risk management, and biannual athlete abuse awareness training. Level 2 coaches and above must be current in CPR and First Aid and have completed on-the-bike and classroom mountain bike skills training.

Yes and no. Rider involvement in practices is crucial to ensure their skills progress with the team. There are always exceptions, and we're very flexible. Just a respectful discussion with your head coach is all it takes. We encourage kids to attend one race at least. Racing is not required. Some kids want to ride. Racing isn't about winning. It's about self-discovery. Our team does not emphasize winning, just doing your best.

We will stop and assess the situation immediately and take appropriate action. There is a coach in the back of every ride group called a sweep. Coaches carry radios, and many have first aid kits. All coaches have to complete annual concussion training. Level 2 coaches and above have CPR and First Aid training (one level 2 or higher is required to be at every practice). Throughout NICA, coaches are far more likely to get injured at practice than students, which has also been true with Rebobs. At races, there is EMS on site. We will call 911 if needed.
