In-school Activities and skills learnt during early childhood have multiple benefits – development of balance and fine motor skills, sense of play, fitness, enjoyment and recognition. Many cyclists say to us that they “…wished they’d started when they were younger…” and we’re here to help, with our In-school Programs.
Junior training opportunities are offered through the Foundation’s contracted cycle training service provider, where young junior riders are introduced to structured training and may choose to target specific events.
Training is conducted appropriate to age and physical development. Senior and experienced racing cyclists serve as mentors to the juniors and provide advice prior, during and after competition. Junior cyclists are encouraged to report regularly on their experiences providing a measure of accountability and reflection.
It is about development of young adults as much as young cyclists.
