Meet our Coach Supporter Team – Pictured L to R – Chad Hayes, Carrie Wilbur, Derek Boyd, and Tom Glover. Our Coach Supporter Team provides guidance, support, and training to new and existing coaches.

From Coach Chad
“I’m excited to work with my fellow coaches around the league in the role of Coach Supporter. I’ve already learned as much from them as they have from me. My goals are pretty simple; be there when a coach needs me and help develop tools to make it easier for them to run a team. I’m also very dedicated to upping our game in regards to having certified coaches leading our teams. The kids deserve good coaching and safe practices and I can already tell that our league coaches share my dedication to the students in our league. I’m proud of what we’re doing in Georgia and enjoy playing a role in the massive growth of middle school/high school mountain bike racing.”

From Coach Derek
“I am so honored and stoked to step into the role of coach supporter for the upcoming 2018 season. I am confident that my twenty plus years of racing, as well as coaching and managing Jr. teams in the South East provides valuable information in an effort to help new and existing Georgia League teams adopt NICA’s philosophy of strong body, strong mind and strong character. I sincerely appreciate the opportunity to set a standard of excellence within our league. I am excited to forge relationships with our coaches and lead by example so they can in turn pass those standards on to student riders.”
