SWCC aims to provide junior cyclists with appropriate development opportunities to assist with furthering their cycling skills and performance and their enjoyment of the sport.  The club conducts a range of events, training sessions, skills development, junior camps and other activities to support junior riders to get the most out of their cycling.

Please send us an email if you wish to find out more about junior development opportunities.

We also support all our juniors with half price club clothing.

Training rides for our Junior Cyclists

Our junior cyclists are supported in their development through the provision of  regular rides and advice by club coaches.  This may include provision of training programs, opportunity to attend education sessions, junior development camps and development days.

The club provides support for junior athletes to attend National and International Championships and any prospective juniors are encouraged to apply in writing to the committee for consideration.  Support will only be provided once every 12 months.  The committee will make a decision on the level of support based on a range of factors.
