and enjoy the benefits
Introduced in 2010 to address the concerns of our high performance coaches to ensure athletes had the required knowledge and understanding of what it will take to gain selection for Australia and perform at the World MTB Championships
Essentially if you are aiming at representing Australia at the MTB World Championships in the coming years in Cross Country and or Down Hill and you are a U19 or U17 MTB athlete in 2013 then this camp is for you!
The camp is aimed at preparing our male and female MTB athletes for World Championships and professional careers in the sport of mountain biking by introducing a long term approach to the development of Australian Junior MTB athletes.
So successful have the camps been that the majority of selected Team members for World Championships in XCO and DHI for 2011 and 2012 were graduates of the camps.
To be conducted out of the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra from Friday 19th to Monday 22nd October, the camp will be the first of several to be conducted before next year’s World MTB Championships.
The camp will be run by National Sporting Director Chris Clarke, Junior National XC coach Tim Ellison and DH Coach Jared Rando. Other leading coaches will also be on hand to assist all athletes through a multitude of tasks aimed at developing MTB skills, personal development techniques and guiding athletes through the expectations placed on elite level athletes.
All attendees must be current and full MTBA members with expectations to be attending rounds of the 2013 National MTB Series.
Please note camp places come on a 'first come first served' basis.
Applications close COB on Friday the 28th September, 2012.
