Registration is now open to join the 2023 BNL Youth Development Program. Interested athletes should contact firstname.lastname@example.org and/or if you've already done so, register through link provided.
Bicycle Newfoundland and Labrador (BNL) is committed to providing guidance, skill development, leadership to ensure our athletes are prepared for competition. Members of this program will form the provincial performance cycling team and work closely with an NCCP Competition Development coach throughout the season. The goal of the program is to provide the province’s top developing athletes with the necessary support to help them achieve successes at local, national and international competitions; Canada Games and/or complete for National Team Selection. This program follows the LTAD model set out by Cycling Canada, and is part of BNL’s High Performance Plan. Athletes are expected to progress through the Learn-to-Train and Train-to-Compete stages of the LTAD while participating in the program.
Selection to the team will require athletes to submit an Expression of Interest to the coach outlining their past achievements, future goals and commitment to cycling. Also, BNL Provincial Racing Membership is mandatory to participate in all team meetings, rides, camps and races. The team will focus on those athletes that have made cycling their primary sport and who demonstrate development potential, and the desire to compete at a higher level. This program is not intended to replace or substitute an athlete’s involvement with their local club, but further enhance their development and training opportunities.
