Our Vision

To continue developing our mountain bike team, with the express purpose of empowering youth athletes aged 16+ to push themselves and ride further into the sport of MTB. Through excellent coaching and mentorship we see this team as a way for youth athletes to develop the skills they need to thrive on their bikes and to fully participate in any other sphere they choose.

We intend the major impacts of this program to include: improved confidence, robust fitness, strong self esteem, exceptional bike handling skills, connection to nature, self awareness, and motivation in the youth athletes who ride with us. As well, we hope participants will experience the support, friendships, and fun that a team atmosphere provides.

Values

  • Fun: To enjoy the journey of becoming a faster and stronger rider, and to create great memories and friendships along the way.  

  • Integrity: Matching actions to values. 

  • Teamwork: Supporting and encouraging one another in the pursuit of your respective goals, lending a hand to change a flat, lending encouragement as someone attempts a challenge, being stronger as a whole. 

  • Respect: For our fellow team members, our coaches and parent volunteers, our equipment and environment, our training facilities, and any people we interact with during our training. Think of yourself as a member of a national team visiting a foreign country. 

  • Achievement: Big or small, achievements can happen every day. Set goals and achieve them. Grow into the person you want to be. 

  • Work Ethic: To take training sessions and practice rides seriously, and to put forth our best efforts on and off the bike.

Our Approach

OUR COACHING PHILOSOPHY IS GUIDED BY DECADES OF EXPERIENCE WORKING WITH ATHLETES IN THE MOUNTAIN BIKE INDUSTRY. WE ARE PRIVILEGED TO HAVE A TEAM OF COACHES WHO BRING TO THE TRAILS A DYNAMIC COMPOSITE OF PROFESSIONAL TRAINING, EDUCATION, AND WORLD CUP EXPERIENCES. WE ARE UNITED IN OUR PASSION FOR PASSING ON OUR KNOWLEDGE, EXPERIENCE, AND STOKE!

OUR COACHING AND TRAINING PROTOCOLS ARE INFORMED BY THE CYCLING CANADA LTAD (LONG TERM ATHLETE DEVELOPMENT) PLATFORM. BY CONTINUING TO USE THIS MODEL, WE ARE MAKING CHOICES FOR OUR ATHLETES BASED ON THE MOST UP TO DATE SPORTS SCIENCE DATA AVAILABLE. OUR YEARLY TRAINING PLANS, STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING SESSIONS, AND TRAINING RIDES ARE PLANNED ACCORDING TO THE DEVELOPMENTAL STAGES OF OUR ATHLETES AS PRESCRIBED BY THE LTAD. OUR COACHES CONTINUE TO DEVELOP AND REFINE THEIR METHODS WITH ONGOING TRAINING FROM THE NATIONAL COACHING CERTIFICATION PROGRAM AND THE PROFESSIONAL MOUNTAIN BIKE INSTRUCTORS ASSOCIATION.
