The Arkansas NICA League is committed to building strong bodies, minds, and character in student-athletes by leading through service for individuals and teams.
It’s so important to us that our race season awards include bonus points for individuals for service hours and half of our team award is based on the service hours for the whole team. For specifics, you can visit the Arkansas Appendix in the NICA Handbook. Students have two choices for how to earn the bonus points:
- Complete 10 bike-related SERVE hours. This can be done through your team or through other organizations, such as OORC, CATA, BikeNWA, FAST, etc.
- Complete NICA’s Service Leadership Development Program, Teen Trail Corps. Student athletes will work toward earning 4 badges to complete their Teen Trail Corps Captain Badge.
Arkansas NICA has a goal of completing over 6,000 service hours in 2021.
Now is the perfect time to start working on service hours!
