We continue to run the Advance Junior Club separately from the Saturday Junior Club, so that a dedicated and specific programme of development can be delivered. With the help of our Advance Club riders we have created an excellent mix of coaching sessions and outride’s that will focus on race participation and development.
This year we continue our focus on race techniques and actively encourage and expect our Advance riders to participate in the BFCC Race series.
Participation and expectation
Junior members of the Club will be invited to join the Advance group by our coaching team should they spot a talented rider within the younger Saturday Junior Club riders. All BFCC coaches will be looking to spot future talent and to make recommendations to move up to the Advance group based on potential ability, commitment and rider conduct. For many this may come at the end of the Summer/Autumn season where the rider’s dedication in attendance could be encouraged by joining the all year round Advance Junior Club.
The Club is committed to developing young riders and all we ask in return is an equal commitment from riders. In partnership with our younger riders we have created our own Code of Conduct that we expect all riders to respect and encourage others to follow.
The Advance Junior Club starts at 10am and finishes at 12noon. We ask riders to meet at the bike wash area near Quench Cycle shop between 9.30 – 9.45am as we have a 10-15 minute ride/walk to the training area. We depart promptly at 10am. For Parents/Guardians collecting children, please be prompt and collect your child/ren from the meeting point at 12noon.
Please ensure that you bring snacks, plenty to drink and appropriate clothing for our great British weather – good or bad.
NOTE: Free drop-off & pick-up parking only last 20 minutes, thereafter a charge will apply.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Due to weather conditions during the winter season we may have to cancel Advance Junior sessions at the last minute. Please ensure that your contact email address is known to our Head Coach and that you double check emails BEFORE departing for any sessions or outrides.
Details of out-rides will be emailed to Advance riders. Any questions, email Gary Scott – Head Coach
NOTE: The above schedule is open to change. All Advance Juniors will be emailed directly advising on Outrides and any changes or additions.
We plan to add more non-BFCC race events, some of which may fall on a Sunday. Under such circumstances we may opt to cancel the Saturday session, if it falls on that weekend, to allow coaches free time to commit to supporting the race event and our riders.
Please ensure that our Head Coach has your current email address as this will be the main form of communication. Remember to check your emails BEFORE any events to see if last minutes changes have been necessary.
