Cycling for all young people on the Island has now finally been brought together under the umbrella of the Jersey Cycling Association Youth Academy or ‘The Academy’. This sees the combined efforts of Velo Sport Jersey and the Caesarean Cycling Club, with sponsorship from Moore Group. Over the next three years the academy aims to build and deliver a structured cycle development programme that is both fun and inclusive to all ages and abilities. Our key objectives is to:
“introduce cycling to youngsters as a form of recreation and sport and to assist individuals reach their maximum potential”
On 25th April 2010 we officially launched the academy at the Tour de Bretagne in Gorey, an exciting opportunity where our juniors tasted racing on an international level.
We look forward to welcoming all our current juniors to the new academy, but also look forward to seeing some new faces over the coming months and years.
