Development Camps

New for 2017, USA Cycling is reintroducing Devo camps but some changes have been implemented.

We have three (3) x 6 day camps planned during the summer period that we hope will make it easier for riders to attend and families to plan for.
We also plan on Weekend Passes available for those riders that want to just show up over the weekend and ride. USA Cycling is working in conjunction with the new management team here in Chula Vista, CA to provide facility use as well as rooms available for both riders and parents (subject to availability). More details below.

Devo Camps Overview

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.

Eligible Participants

All athletes participating in the USA Cycling BMX Development camps must be U.S. citizens and compete for the USA at international competitions. All athletes must have an active USA Cycling BMX License to register for BMX Development camps. All participants must carry and provide proof of health insurance upon athlete check-in at the Chula Vista Training Center.

Qualifying Rules

All rules regarding age class participation and qualifying events will use the current year USA BMX rule book.

Qualifying For Camps

A rider may be selected to attend the camps based on the following criteria:

  • USA BMX National expert and girls class scores (15 & 16 Age class)

Male: The top three (2) male riders, as determined by participation in the USA BMX National Series in each of the 15 and 16 age expert classes, will receive an automatic invite* to the camp. If a rider in the top three does not accept the automatic invitation, that position will be filled with the remaining camp slots at the sole discretion of USA Cycling. The points will be tallied after each of the (3) qualifying periods by USABMX and presented to USA Cycling a short time after. Additional camp spots will be awarded to non-qualified Devo riders who have submitted an application or who have been identified by USA Cycling coaches at USABMX nationals. USA Cycling reserves the right to not make any coaching selections based on bed availability.

The points will be tallied after each of the (3) qualifying periods by USABMX and presented to USA Cycling a short time after. Additional camp spots will be awarded to non-qualified Devo riders who have submitted an application or who have been identified by USA Cycling coaches at USABMX nationals. USA Cycling reserves the right to not make any coaching selections based on bed availability.

*Please allow time for USABMX to compile the points before they send it to USA Cycling. As soon as USA Cycling knows the riders who have qualified they will immediately contact those individuals directly. It is wise to keep your USA Cycling account up-to-date with current email for contact purposes.

The “Weekend Pass”

We understand that not all riders and their parents can commit to the Devo camps, so, new for 2017, USA Cycling is introducing the “Weekend Pass”. BMX riders that hold a USA Cycling BMX license, born between years 1998 and 2002 will be able to book accommodation and facility use at the Chula Vista training center. All participants must carry and provide proof of health insurance upon athlete check-in at the Chula Vista Training Center.
A coach will be provided for the sessions but make note there may or may not be planned sessions already scheduled on the days you are scheduled to ride. If sessions are planned, you will be allowed to join in. If sessions are not planned, you will still have access to the tracks. Terms and Conditions do apply and availability will depend on housing availability at the Training Center.
