DEVO After-school Program
This past October DEVO undertook an after-school pilot project to introduce the students of Capilano Elementary School in North Vancouver to cycling. Coached by Andrew Pinfold, Alison Sydor and Erich Harvey, the kids participated in 4, 2-hour sessions. Activities included basic skills instruction, racing techniques and mini mountain bike and CX races. A total of 23 kids participated in the program and many of them expressed an interest in joining DE-VO next spring. The purpose of the project was to introduce local kids to a new sport and recruit future participants of DEVO thus continue to build a sustainable recruitment model as required in our 2020 vision.
