NJICL Coaches’ Resources

Welcome coaches, thank you for everything you do and have done to make the NJICL a success! I know from personal experience that the world of NICA can easily feel like you’re drinking from a firehose. This page is an attempt to succinctly present the essential materials and resources you might need as a NJICL coach in one place. If you can think of anything that’s missing, please shoot me a note so we can add it. And of course feel free to reach out any time with questions, to kick around ideas or just to touch base.

Best, Tom Kruse
NJICL League Director
