Cycling BC operates development and performance programs for cyclists with the potential to achieve success at the national and international level. In 2013 we will offer performance enhancement and services that support cycling athletes who compete for BC at National Championships, Canada Summer Games, and on the World Development Stage.
Cycling BC Provincial Programs
Targeted athletes and their coaches will be offered opportunities to develop through the Provincial Development and Performance pathways from Youth through Elite. The goal of development is transition BC athletes to National Team performances. Talented athletes with potential to succeed will be developed with gradually increasing contact time, commitment, and access to high performance services that are aligned with best practices of long term athlete development. Athletes will be selected, based on published criteria consistent with the aims set for each project. Eligible athletes will be drawn from a broad Talent Development Pool that is built and revised by applications from interested athletes or by invitation from Cycling BC.
CSC-Pacific/PacSport Cycling BC Athlete Carding
Athletes competing in Olympic and Canada Games disciplines may be eligible for support through the Integrated Performance Services (IPS) provided by the Canadian Sport Centre Pacific (CSC P) and PacificSport Network of centres. To receive IPS, athletes are selected and classified according to general and sport-specific criteria, then receive services dependent on the level of carding defined by Cycling BC and CSC P (Podium, Canadian Elite, Canadian Development, or Provincial Development). The services available for each category are listed on the Canadian Sport Centre Pacific website, and the carding criteria are now posted.
