The Arkansas NICA League is committed to building strong bodies, minds, and character in student-athletes by instilling good stewardship.

Student Athletes who complete 10 hours of volunteer/advocacy hours for the 2019 season (January – October) will receive a 25 point bonus on their end of season race points total.  4 of the hours should be trail work.  More information to come, but hours can begin to accumulate starting January 1 and will need to be input into the pit zone by October 27.

Student athletes who complete their Teen Trail Corp Captain Award will also be eligible for the 25 bonus points.

More information about volunteer program is available HERE.

Cycling related hours should be tracked in the pit zone.  A printable Student Form for students to keep track of their hours that are not cycling related is available HERE.
