These young athletes will compete for the opportunity to receive specific high performance training for BMX, access to the Supercross World Cup BMX track(s), and to experience a day in the life of a U.S. Olympic athlete. Furthermore, by providing these opportunities, we hope to progress the skill level needed to be competitive at the highest level of international BMX competition. This will help familiarize them with the bigger, faster, and more demanding style of BMX racing, which is contested at the
UCI Supercross World Cup series, the
World Championships, and the Olympic Games.
All BMX Development camps will take place at the EAS Training Center in Chula Vista, Ca while utilizing the Supercross BMX tracks, the Chula Vista BMX track, the Skills Development Grounds, and access to the USOC Strength and Conditioning and Sports Performance facilities. Daily classroom education and video review is also a big part of the camps to instruct athletes in the areas of professionalism, sports nutrition, recovery, and training techniques.
