CCC’s goal is to inspire youth to develop a passion in cycling and create a future generation of avid CCC cyclists. The focus of the program is safety, fun and mountain bike skill development, in that order. The focus is to have fun in a safe controlled environment with the focus on skill development and endurance. The team will have the opportunity to participate in a variety of fun team relay events, weekly race series (Hardwood Hills, Albion Hills) and some Ontario Cup events. The program is led by NCCP certified coach Noelle Wansbrough (pedal-pushers) and a variety of guides and volunteers with years of racing experience . Participants in the program must be able to ride at a level where they understand gear selection, general bike handling skills and are comfortable climbing hills and riding singletrack trails. If you are concerned whether or not your child is ready for our program please email your inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note that where there is significant demand we will try to add coaches and/or more volunteers to the program to create more space.
The components of our youth program include:
Sprockids (10-14 years): Focus on developing mountain bike skills to become competent cross country riders.
Devokids (12-18years): Ride n’ race program geared for riders developing intermediate/advanced skills. Kids participating in weekly race series, O’Cup race and team endurance events.
1. Skills & Drills
Skills & drills are the foundation of our program. In a safe environment we will focus on developing ability in balance, cornering, front wheel lifts and a variety of other components for navigating off road features.
2. Race tactics
Following the LTAD model of athlete development-Learning to Train and Learing to Race.
2. Trail Exploration & maintenance
Participants will be required to participate in a trail maintenance day at the beginning of the season. This is a great team bonding experience and allows the kids to learn trail maintenance skills while exporing the terrain they will be riding on.
