2014-2015 “Rising Stars” Endurance Development Academy

The Ontario Cycling Association is pleased to announce the first 2 camps for the 2014-2015 “Rising Stars” Endurance Development Academy.   The track program is designed to support Ontario athletes that have the potential and ambition of making it onto an Olympic podium in the future.

Once the Milton Velodrome opens it will become the home of the Rising Stars program and all the athletes will have regular access to training at the new facility. The Rising Stars Academy will focus on athlete identification and development. Our goal is to reach over 200 athletes in the 2014/15 season, focusing on athletes between the ages of 13 and 18.

The next tryout dates are Saturday, September 20th (New riders into the program), and Saturday, September 27th (identified experienced track athletes) at the Forest City Velodrome in London.  The camps will begin at 11am; OCA club membership or citizen permit is required.

Club coaches are encouraged to attend and get involved with the Rising Stars program.  Athletes will be given the opportunity for further training that will take place in October.
