An Update On The USA Cycling Olympic Development Academy

January 29, 2021

The Olympic Development Academy will be run as one “Super Semester” in 2021.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – USA Cycling announced their new program, the Olympic Development Academy (ODA), in an effort to create more junior development opportunities across all cycling disciplines. The new Olympic Development Academy is an athletes’ full access to world-class coaches and other specialists, in-depth training plans and camps, and national and international competition schedules. The ODA is for national-level junior and under-23 athletes looking to make the next step to the international level.

Our goal is to provide the best development opportunity for athletes by creating a world-class cycling experience. With the current state of the world, we do not feel that we can create that environment at this time. With that in mind, the Olympic Development Academy will be run as one Super Semester in 2021. The Super Semester will be a single fee for the year, extending benefits with no additional cost.

The application period has been extended to March 15th, 2021. We will share another update on Wednesday, February 17th with more specific information on important dates, deadlines, schedules, etc. Thank you for your understanding as we continue navigating during these unprecedented times.
