OCA Sprint Program @ Milton Velodrome
Oct 28 2017 – Apr 1 2018 all-day

The OCA Track Sprint programming includes a “Development” and “Transition” stream to assist aspiring athletes in learning the skills and tactics required to be successful at track sprint.

 

Development Program

The Development program is designed for athletes interested in developing their track sprint abilities, while also learning skills and tactics for match sprint, team sprint, keirin, and kilo. Athletes are encouraged to continue participating in endurance-based events. Typically, this program will focus on athletes aged 13 – 16 and  athletes who are newer to track cycling. Training will be on-track only, taking place every 2-3 weeks from October – April. This stream will be lead by former USA National Team Sprinter Keyln Akuna.

Athletes will be coached by the Provincial Track Sprint Coach and former Team Canada Member, Joseph Veloce, and receive training programs for integration into existing club programming and on-going support and monitoring.  Athletes will also receive individualized strength and conditioning from a dedicated strength coach twice a week out of the Canadian Sport Institute Ontario training facility at the velodrome [athletes living farther from the velodrome will be prescribed a workout to complete from home for one of the sessions].

February Endurance Camp @ Seneca, South Carolina
Feb 11 – Feb 24 all-day

For 2018, the OCA will be facilitating a February training camp near Seneca, South Carolina. In order to keep programming affordable we have decided to offer a training camp at a location that is less expensive to get to and less expensive to stay, yet while still offering excellent access to quality roads and terrain that are necessary to build early season base fitness. Our plan is to rent a facility that will allow each athlete to stay in comfort, while also providing space for athletes to cook and prepare food in a home kitchen.

Transportation will be provided by way of two large vans driving down to the camp. Athletes can get a ride or if the timing of the departure does not work then they can choose to fly into one of the local airports at their own expense.

The roads will be equally as good as previous February camps with great access to lots of climbing and long endurance miles.

Please see application for more details.  Applications must be received by Nov. 24. 2018.

Application please type directly in the document and submit to sean.kelly@ontariocycling.org [Due Nov. 24]

Youth Track Development Series: Season Finale @ Mattamy National Cycling Centre
Feb 24 all-day

2017/2018 Ontario Youth Track Development Series

The Track Development Youth Series provides opportunity for young riders to develop skills and progress as an athlete, and be challenged by other riders of a similar ability.

Riders will continue to select their category based on their own ability.  This is to further align the Track Development Youth Series with the Long Term Athlete Development Model (LTAD). This alignment will allow first time riders to select a category that they are both comfortable with and allow them to work their way up to competing in a more advanced category. Under the new system males and females will be racing together with riders of the same caliber.

Over the course of the series athletes can expect a number of track events. Each date will feature 3-4 different events.
