CCA ID CAMP AND 2009 TEAM PLANS
for the coming BMX Season. Our goal is to develop riders with the potential to
medal at the 2012 Olympic Games in London and beyond, and to come out of
the ’09/10' season with a clear pathway towards 2012 and beyond
Junior and Elite Athletes who believe that they have the potential to medal at
major Games and championships in the next four years should email Nicholas
Vipond at the CCA at Nicholas.firstname.lastname@example.org with their current
race results and the reasons why they have what it takes to contribute to
Olympic medal performances. This must be submitted to the CCA by April 29th
2009 for athletes interested in attending the Western Canada Talent ID camp
and by May 3rd 2009 for athletes interested in attending the Eastern Canada
Talent ID Camp.
Western training camp, the first being Airdrie (May 11th to 14th). This camp will
allow riders to perform at their current level with the goal of being identified by
the appointed CCA Coach. This camp is for those riders that want to commit to
BMX racing at a national and international level for the next 4 years, those who
don’t feel that they can commit to training and racing at this level for the next
four years should not apply. The goal of this camp will be to identify the pool of
riders for the National ID Team aiming at London 2012 and beyond. These
camps will be self-funded and the athletes will be responsible for their own
flight, accommodation and food during the camp, as well as a small camp fee.
For the camps the CCA will be providing Coaching staff as well as experts in
fields such as physiological testing, nutrition and strength and conditioning
where possible. The camps will consist of track sessions to measure
performance as well as skill development, off track testing, and information
