Volunteer for the Wisconsin Interscholastic Cycling League
Race weekends are HUGE events!! In fact, I would be willing to bet each NICA WI League race weekend is a larger sporting event than any other middle or high school sporting championship event and we do this for 7 out of 8 weekends in a row!!
- Nearly 1800 athletes
- Nearly 900 coaches
- 80 teams
- 4-5 miles of course to mark
- 28 race waves
- 6 hours of racing
- Hundreds of tents and campers
- Hundreds of cars
- Food Vendors
- Sponsor tents
- Bike Mechanics
- Singers and musicians
- more noise makers and costumes than you can count
All this adds up to some serious STOKE and FUN! You WANT, no you NEED to be part of it all!
As a parent, grandparent, caregiver or friend, supporting your student athlete on race day is priority number one but the WI League needs your help too for race weekend to run smoothly.
Seeing the faces of accomplishment as athletes come through can put a lump in your throat. Cheering on athletes as a course marshal and stepping in to communicate via radio if an athlete needs assistance is critical to our safety plan. Helping to set up the start/finish area is a great way to make new friends. Unwrapping and setting up the awards table is very rewarding! The internal joy of knowing you helped contribute to these awesome weekends is a feeling like no other. None of this requires bike riding skills or knowledge – just a willing attitude to help make our race weekends great!
