The MCA Development Program is aimed at introducing young athletes to competition and structured training in several cycling disciplines. This program builds upon the fundamental skills of general sport movement and basic cycling learnt in our grassroots program (Kids of Mud) and from other sports. Athletes are introduced to the different aspects of training (physical, motor, technical, mental, nutrition, etc), and how to compete in multiple cycling disciplines.
This program is the “Train to Train” and “Learn to Compete” stages of the LTAD model. This program works towards facilitating athletic growth and development in multiple cycling disciplines, preparing athletes for competition in age-appropriate Manitoba races. This program is the link from our Kids of Mud fundamental program to the Performance Program.

Mary Prendergast – Provincial Assistant Coach
This program is open to athletes 13-18 years of age (as of December 31) who are interested in competitive cycling. Athletes will compete in all road, mountain bike and cyclocross events during the season, and are required to have at minimum a cyclocross bike and mountain bike. Athletes outside of Winnipeg are encouraged to join the program, as arrangements will be made so that training can be done on their own.
