Cycling Development Program

(Ages 10-13 Years)

The Cycling Development Program is for athletes ages 10 - 13. The goal of the program is to develop basic cycling skills such as bike handling, acceleration, controlled braking, cornering and learning to handle obstacles. Athletes learn these skills in a fun, safe, challenging environment.

When exploring these cycling fundamentals, an emphasis is placed on teamwork and proficient skill execution. Each session is coach-led and peer supported. At the end of each eight-week phase, athletes complete a skills assessment ensuring competence on the bike in each discipline.
