The 3433 Sport Performance Para Initiation program goal is to take athletes with an interest in Para Cycling to a point where they feel comfortable on their bike (Trike, Handcycle, Tandem etc), and introduce the concept of structured training and goal setting with the prospect of racing within the province this season. Coaches will assess any adaptations that they may need and to get a sense of the athletes functional classification.
Spinal Cord Injury or wheelchair-based athletes will require a membership to Ultimate Wheelchair Sports and have the ability to rent a bike for the season for $100.
Para Cycling Athletes have two options that account for different schedules:
