Cycling Canada has announced that it will be hosting 13 Advancement Camps across Canada, between June and November 2022. The camps will cater to athletes competing in Mountain Bike, Downhill, Track, Road, Para-cycling, Cyclo-cross and BMX, and will target mainly U17 and U19 provincial and club-level riders, talent transfers and other athletes with the desire to reach the National Team in the short to medium term.
With camps being held in conjunction with existing events on the National calendar, the main purpose will be to foster an environment where athletes, coaches and the cycling community share and exchange knowledge of the sport. On top of skill development workshops and discussions, Advancement Camps will incorporate a short presentation and Wheel Side Chat with a Gracious Champion about their own experience with success, failure and resilience.
"Advancement Camps will be a great way to raise athletes' awareness through standards and expectations of what is possible for their next level of development," said Tanya Dubnicoff, Advancement Camp Coach at Cycling Canada. "Together, National Team coaches, provincial coaches and club coaches can help foster an environment of next-level education where athletes are exposed to tools and skills outside their normal environment. Our goal is ultimately to introduce the values, skills, behaviours and tools needed to integrate the National Team in the near future."
The Cycling Canada Gracious Champions Wheel Side Chat is free to athletes, coaches and parents. There will be a 20$ camp fee due at event registration to offset any costs associated with local rentals, local coaches, and local supporting personnel. Athletes are responsible for their own food and accommodation duration of the camp. Participants can register online at this Link.
If you have any questions about how to take part in National Team Programming or Projects, please feel free to contact Advancement Camp Coach Tanya Dubnicoff or Guillaume Plourde.
