Youth Cycling League
Our Youth Cycling League program was started in 2003 as a way for us to provide programing for youth and young cyclists in the local East Point area. We run over 50 sessions each year with total youth participation in the program at around 1000.
There are some changes for 2016. Session 1 starts at 5:30pm and is a 1 hour session for beginner riders and younger riders. The second session will last an hour and a half starting at 6:30 for intermediate to experienced riders at least 12 years and selected younger riders who meet a 200m time qualification to be determined by the YCL coaches. The program will continue to be held on Monday's and Thursday's.

5:30pm till 6:30pm for Beginner's or Young Riders 8-12yo

Some more info about the program:
The East Point Velodrome Association is proud to bring back for another year our Youth Cycling League. This exciting program will offer all children a unique opportunity to enjoy the sport of cycling in a controlled, structured environment. The Youth Cycling League utilizes specially designed bikes to give children ages 8-16 the ride of a lifetime. The Youth Cycling League is coached by licensed coaches who are experienced bicycle riders and racers themselves. Children will learn how to safely operate their bikes on the banked track and will have the opportunity to compete under the close supervision of their coaches nightly and under the lights during the Pro Race Series events. Don't miss the fun, come down for the next class.
For current schedule please check our calendar.
Class is not held if it is raining. See what the weather looks like on the Weather page.
