Youth Club Coaching Seed Grants

We are constantly on the look out for new talent. Canada produces some exceptional young riders, still, there is no systematic development pathway to get large numbers of kids involved in the cycling. In response, the BTG Fund has created a youth club grant program to seed and develop youth cycling clubs across Canada.

The BTG Youth Club seeding program is for Canadian youth endurance cycling programs dedicated to growing the sport of bike racing. Clubs applying to this program are intending to grow their programs into financially self-sustaining programs that follow the principles of Cycling Canada’s Long-term Athlete Development plan, develop endurance discipline bike racers and utilize their surrounding community for support of amateur sport. Coaching grants are intended to “Bridge the Gap” between the time a program commits to a sustainable model and the time they achieve their model (two year limit). Funds supplied through this grant are specifically targeted at hiring coaches.

Typical grants range in size from $5,000 – $8,000.

Final Deadline for 2021 intake is Dec 1st, 2020 at 5:00pm PST
