Currently, girls represent 22% of NICA Virginia’s overall student-athlete participation. NICA GRiT (Girls Riding Together) seeks to increase that number significantly over the next five years. The GRiT Program is our effort to recruit and retain more girls and female coaches in NICA programs.
— Joe Hoskins, NICA VA GRiT Coordinator


GRiT is NICA’s focused effort to bring more girls and women into cycling -- in order to close the opportunity gap for current and future generations. NICA aims to increase female participation rates in our programs by 10% over the coming 5 years.
