Athlete Identification and Development Camp


Jul. 26, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Event Information


The mission of the GVVA Cycling Athlete Development Camps is to provide an environment of support to athletes who, at an early age, show signs of interest and commitment to their future success in cycling. The camp curriculum has been developed to maximize learning opportunities for all participants, as well as challenge each athlete to develop and implement new technical, tactical, physical and mental skills through the various seminars, training talks, and racing opportunities offered throughout the week.

Receiving daily instruction from some of Western Canada’s finest Cycling coaches, the camps provide the necessary framework to improve the athlete’s skillset, thus progressing their individual cycling development.  Each athlete will receive an individual athlete report card following their participation in the camp assessing their cycling skills, tactical competency, and overall competition performance.

The camp is being offered by the Greater Victoria Velodrome Association (GVVA), supported by Cycling BC and the many youth clubs in Victoria and within British Columbia. It includes five camp days, and two days of racing at the 2017 BC Track Championships, hosted by the Greater Victoria Velodrome Association.
