Athletes born in 1998-2003, who are currently racing at the Provincial, and/or National level in Road, Track, CX, MTB or BMX are invited to apply to the Canadian Sport Institute Pacific Athlete Identification and Development Camp, June 28-July 3. Athletes will be selected to participate based on previous racing results, RBC Training Ground and/or PODIUM SEARCH results, or club/PSO coach recommendations. For 2016 the focus of the Cycling Athlete Development Camps will be on Track Cycling.
The mission of the 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 in partnership with the Greater Victoria Velodrome Association (GVVA). Primary camp activities will take place at the Westshore Velodrome – 1767 Island Highway, Victoria (Colwood).
