MTBA is pleased to announce the locations and dates of two Junior Camps as part of a general expansion of development programs, and the formation of an MTBA Development Academy.
The camps will bring together riders aged 14 to 18 from the disciplines of Cross-country (XC), Downhill (DH), Gravity Enduro (GE) and Cyclo-cross (CX) and will include riding sessions specific to each discipline as well as a range of off the bike activities as a combined group.
The schedule and sessions will vary slightly from camp to camp so as to maximise the use of local trails, infrastructure and local coaching staff.
Athletes can attend multiple camps if they choose to and activities on camp are designed to allow riders with previous camp experience to participate in more advanced activities.
In addition MTBA accredited coaches and skills instructors are invited to attend the camp to assist the lead coaches and broaden their coaching experience. The Junior Development page of the MTBA website has more details including a downloadable information sheet and links to camp applications.
