The Australian Institute of Sport Talent Search Program is currently looking to identify males with power, speed and determination to succeed in track sprint cycling.

The program is seeking males aged between 15 to 19 years old (parental consent required if under 18 years old) who are fast and explosive and live in Victoria. This initiative aims to identify the most talented males who could potentially represent Australia at the 2012 Olympics Games in London and provide them with the opportunities to become nationally and internationally competitive track sprint cyclists.

The Australian Institute of Sport Talent Search Program will provide coaching from one of the best Track Sprint coaches in Australia (Hilton Clarke: Assistant Cycling Coach: Victorian Institute of Sport), training and education camps, and assistance with access to competition.

A pool of approximately 10 athletes that have the physical and mental power and speed will be shortlisted from the initial intake. The AIS will have one testing session on Sunday, September 17, 2006, but applicants can also get a PE teacher/coach/parent to time them at another convenient time.
