The camps are intended as a shared developmental program, aimed at riders becoming more committed to track, and to prepare for National Track Championships/Junior Worlds Trials in Milton, March 30 – April 2nd. Every accepted rider will be accommodated in team event training, with a coach and team performance objectives, through to nationals if they want. Riders DO NOT need to commit to attending Nationals. That said, if the camps fill up, priority will go to riders committing to the full series of camps. Our view is that a focus on teammates and training together at the camps will motivate riders to train between camps, whether for personal development, or to perform in March.
This year there is a new opportunity to decide if you’re ready for Nationals, by attending the Western Canadian Track Championships in Burnaby in February 24th to 26th.
Riders should be U17 or U19, with second year U15 riders if space allows.
There will be four training camps: Dec. 15-16, Jan. 12-13, Feb. 16-17 and Mar. 23-24th. The camp fee is $200 for all 4 camps. This includes: coaching, Burnaby track rental for 4 x 2 hours sessions over two days, in December, January, February and March. The fee includes a billet with a Vancouver area riders family, transportation to and from the track with the billet family, and for island riders, a ferry shuttle Thursday morning and Friday evening. Special presentations and seminars to be announced based on athletes feedback. To register please fill out the registration form here.
