XC Junior Development Squad

Applications can be made online and close on August 14


Mountain Bike Australia will be hosting junior development squads across the country in the first step for riders on the pathway to elite racing.  The Adelaide squad will be run by MTBA’s Coach Education Coordinator and Adelaide Mountain Bike Club member Evan James and will consist of a series of group training sessions with the ultimate goal of travelling together and competing at the MTBA National Championships on the Gold Coast in March 2017.

Program Duration: Mid-September to Late March.
Athlete Age: Born 1999 to 2002 inclusive (special dispensation for athletes just outside this age range may be available – please contact the coach).
Squad Size: Capped at 8.

Applicants are not obliged to accept a place on the squad so anyone interested in the program is encouraged to apply so they receive additional information as the program is developed. Athletes will be notified of the selection process outcome within a few weeks of applications closing.
