The GRiT initiative is an effort by the National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) to recruit and retain more girls and female coaches in NICA programs. The overarching goal of the NICA GRiT initiative is to increase the overall participation rate to 33% female participation (coaches and student-athletes each) by 2023. #moregirlsonbikes!
NICA: The New Normal
Merchandise Design Contest
We are excited to announce the NICA GRiT Merchandise Design Contest starting Tuesday, May 12th and ending on Friday, May 22nd. Any NICA GRiT female-identifying student-athlete is allowed to participate in the design contest. You can submit a design for a GRiT sweatshirt, hat, and face covering (or all of the above!).
Please make sure to submit your design idea to us by 5:00 PM PST on the last day, otherwise your design will not be reviewed. The winner of each item (there will be different ones for each article of clothing) will receive their design on the garment for free and have their design sold in the NICA Store starting in the first week of June.
