Advanced Juniors Development

Where Junior Cyclists Chase Speed on the Track!

Get ready for an exciting year at the San Diego Velodrome, tailored just for your little ones!

Designed for children aged 8 to 18, our youth programs will be in full swing on Fridays from 5 pm to 6:30 pm.  Our mission is to spark a lifelong love for cycling in your kids, ensuring that their passion for biking continues well beyond their younger years.

To ensure a safe and enjoyable experience, riders will be grouped based on their abilities. This not only enhances safety but also allows your kids to have a blast with others who share similar skills and interests.

At the San Diego Velodrome, we're currently offering 3 levels of youth classes, catering to a variety of skill levels. So, whether your child is a budding cyclist or already a skilled rider, there's a perfect class for them to join in on the fun and learning. Here's to a season filled with pedal-powered adventures and unforgettable memories for your little riders!
