• YOUTH STRUCTURED TRAINING

    Riders 10-18 that have completed their Certification are invited to participate in the NCIM Youth Structured Program. Youth Structured Training is offered in two streams – the Yellow Group and the Black Group

    The Yellow Group is aimed at younger (10- 15) or newly certified riders, while the Black group riders are older (12-18) and slightly more experienced.

    Coaches will work with athletes to develop skill, fitness and physical capacity for track cycling, while always ensuring a fun and exciting atmosphere. During the first sessions, riders will be assessed and placed in a suitable group, based on their track riding competence. Programming will increase skill and fitness levels. The Black group begins to introduce a racing component to riders training and helps prepare the athletes to take their cycling to the next level. Ages 10-18. Bike rentals available free of charge.

    • Mondays – Yellow Group (newly certified, developing riders)
    • Fridays – Black Group (previous, experienced YST riders)

  • YOUTH HIGH PERFORMANCE - Red Group

    Our High-Performance program is designed to develop an athlete’s racing skills as they progress from their first NCIM Track League races, all the way to the Junior World Championships and beyond.

    The Red Group is geared to helping the athlete improve their fitness while working on their racing technique and skills, to make them competitive at the Provincial, National, and International level.  There is an emphasis on skill acquisition, such as bunch racing, madison and other technical aspects of track racing.

    Classes are structured with a focus on skills and efforts targeted towards improvement in performance and actual race simulations. This class is recommended for riders who have already raced, are comfortable riding in large groups on the track, and are interested in improving their racing skills. Ages 10-18.

    Overview:

    • The program is athlete-focused with a consistent goal to develop youth cyclists committed to improving their performance.
    • The model athlete has above-average cycling skills.
    • Sessions are often split into two groups, one coach attached to each grouping.  Each coach instructs the athletes with warm ups, briefings, instruction, feedback, debriefings, etc.  Athletes will be placed in the group that best meets their abilities for that day.
    • Specific structured training sessions are consistent and scheduled twice per week (in the Fall and Winter), with the expectation of some race weeks/weekends.
