Nevada South Interscholastic Cycling League

The Nevada South Interscholastic Cycling League (NSICL) was founded in 2021 as a non-profit 501(c)(3) Project League of the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA). We facilitate the development of high school and middle school teams/clubs for grades 6-12 and provide the education, training, licensing and insurance for coaches and volunteers. We also produce high-quality mountain bike events and races that emphasize the value of participation, camaraderie, positive sporting behavior and well-being over competition.
