The Team Mission-Source
Junior Development Team was
created to solve a need found in the gap
between the ability and potential of junior
aged cyclist in the Atlanta-Metro area,
and the guidance they were receiving.
who we are:
We feel we have a unique
opportunity to expand a junior
cycling in the Southeast. Through the support of our sponsors, the North Georgia Cycling Association as a host team, and the
commitment of the team members, parents, and first class coaching,
we have developed a program that is accessible to talented Juniors
regardless of their financial
situation. We are dedicated to the goal that financial resources will not be a limiting factor for a child who has shown a commitment to
cycling and has displayed the ability to work well in a team
Our Junior team doesn't just race, we believe strongly that we can influence kids, across all demographics, to discover the joy of cycling. Whether it's through bike safety classes, junior specific training rides, or question/answer sessions on how to get involved in junior racing, our juniors enjoy spreading the message about the fun and benefits of cycling.
A working goal of this program will be to also identify and involve potential
riders that lack some of the resources to get more involved.
The Youth Cycling League at the Dick Lane Velodrome in East Point
is one resource we are working with and we are always looking for others.
We wish to work in tandem with these organizations and help interested and
dedicated youth evolve to achieve their higher potential.
Not all young cyclists will be able to become professionals. However, that does not mean they are any less deserving of the same quality of instruction and attention to reach their highest potential as young men and women.
The goal is to teach not just the fundamentals of bike racing and riding, but to instill a lifelong love of a sport that is both healthy and adventurous. Our hope is that love will continue past the point of whether a rider’s future is as a professional or hobbyist. However, we are extremely proud of our riders growing and moving on to better teams.
The Team Mission-Source Junior Development Program allows these junior cyclists the ability to ride with and be coached by athletes who have gone through development programs and high level coaching themselves.
It is based on a principle of working with aspiring professionals who in turn mentor the older juniors. We also then encourage the older juniors to inspire younger juniors just discovering cycling. It is a system designed to foster not just ambition,but leadership skills and teamwork that extends beyond the tarmac and into life
