Junior Development Program

The Junior Development Program consists of two programs – training squad and personal coaching.


The Training Squad trains on Mondays and Thursdays at the Hawthorn velodrome, Reserve Road, Hawthorn.

The training squad is open to junior riders with a current Cycling Australia race licence. New riders are welcome to come and try and participate without a race licence.

Mondays sessions are on road racing bikes, whilst Thursdays are on Track Bikes (we have bikes available for loan)

Summer season training is held on the outdoor velodrome and starts at 6.00 pm.

Winter season training is held in the Hawthorn velodrome pavilion and riders are required to bring along their bike, an indoor trainer, towel, drink bottle and heart rate monitor (optional) and starts at 7.00 pm.

Regular weekend long rides for all members of the JDP will be organised throughout the year (weather and racing dependent).


Riders can also participate in our Personal Coaching Program. This will entail:

  • Individual training programs set by a qualified club coach
    • Goal setting
    • Results analysis
    • Fortnightly catch ups to discuss progress, training program refinement and racing plans
    • Skills development e.g. sprinting, cornering, descending.

Additional to the program, we partner specialists who undertake professional bike set up, mechanical repairs, physiological and power testing for riders.
