Youth Clubs & Teams

Cycling BC is committed to creating safe and positive experiences for youth across the province.

Cycling BC has two distinct youth program models, youth clubs and youth teams.

Youth Clubs

  • Open to the public
  • Provide 10-16 week programs
  • Youth are in the Learn to Train (pre-growth spurt) and Train to Train (during growth spurt) Long Term Development stage.

Youth Teams

  • Typically by-invitation-only
  • Provide year-round programming
  • Youth are in the Train to Compete (post-growth spurt) Long Term Development stage.

Getting Started

Youth clubs often allow new riders to visit a club practice free of charge and see if it is a good fit. To optimize the experience, we recommend riders exhibit Level 5 skills before visiting a youth club. To help your child build basic cycling skills, confidence, and a social group in cycling during the FUNdamentals Long Term Development stage, please visit our HopOn website to explore school, community, and affiliated programs in your area. Each youth club offers unique services that best fit the community’s needs. Sessions may focus on either one or multiple cycling disciplines, and rental equipment may be available for new riders.

Youth teams are focused on developing life skills through the experience of competing at regional and national events. Riders who graduate from their youth club but are not interested in competitive events can explore the coach education pathway and take on the role of after-school instructor or pursue recreational cycling through our network of recreational affiliates or mass-participation events.

For more information, please use the table below to contact a club or team in your area.
