The Ontario Summer Games form an integral part of the OCA’s strategy to develop younger riders. One of the primary targets of the High Performance program is to develop riders who are competitive at the Canada Summer Games (CSG). Ideally we want to see you athletes compete in the Ontario Summer Games as a prelude to the Canada Summer Games, as the athletes in CSG are typically 16-23 years of age.
48 riders form MTB and 72 for Road, sourced from the following 12 regions, will be a priority for the 2016 games. (Regions outlined below). The MTB portion will be team based with 4 riders per team (minimum 1 Female per team).
Application Deadline is Friday May 20th, 2016 at 5:00 pm
