AUSCYCLING COMPETITIVE RIDE JOURNEY


AUSCYCLING DEVELOPMET ACADEMY

For all the information on the AusCycling Development Academies see the dedicated Academy page.


NATIONAL JUNIOR TRAVEL PROGRAM (NJTP) 

Major domestic events are an important focus for development athletes and AusCycling recognises that attendance can be a significant time and financial burden on families. The NJTP gives the opportunity for U17, U19 and U23 riders to attend selected events without requiring parent/guardian accompaniment, and under the supervision of experienced and accredited coaches and staff. Athletes are met at the destination airport and are under the care of AusCycling staff until they are on their returning flight at the end of the camp. 

Due to the ongoing requirement to isolate positive COVID cases and the duty of care and logistical challenges this presents with unaccompanied junior athletes travelling interstate the NJTP has been put on hold until the end of October 2022.
