The NICA Coach Education Program was introduced to ensure that all GoSo student-athletes have adult leaders familiar with the best coaching practices. All Licensed Coaches have been background checked and have received training in topics that include: Athlete Abuse Awareness, Risk Management, Coaching Philosophy, and have received Concussion Training.
To work with our student-athletes, all coaches must meet the NICA licensure requirements at one of three levels:
Level 1 Certification: Assists all coaches as directed by the Head Coach
Level 2 Certification: Assists level 3 coaches with advanced tasks such as teaching skills and leading rides
Level 3 Certification: Takes a leadership role within the team. Equivalent competencies as Head Coach
