To encourage our Alumni to stay connected with their team after graduation, NICA has developed the NICA Alumni Challenge:
“During your team’s next season, volunteer with your team for one ride.”
Both NICA and our local NorCal league informed alumni about the challenge with a league-specific Alumni Welcome E-mail. We hope alumni will contact us and join in on a Tam High MTB ride if they can, wear your old jersey and come and have fun. Have you been racing in college or just working too hard? We want to know!
By “volunteer” we intend for alumni to ride with the Tam High MTB team and share their experiences in transitioning into their post-high school activities. In-line with the existing volunteer visitor policy, “An adult alumni can join a ride ONCE with just a signed release.” They will be covered under team insurance as with any other volunteers.
If any alumni want to join their old team for more than one ride, they would need to do so in a coaching capacity by obtaining their general volunteer license, which involves completing concussion training and a background check, having a signed release on file, and paying their coach’s fee in the Pit Zone. Many alumni have already successfully stayed connected and become coaches for their team.
We hope to see you! Check out our event calendar.
