We are Devo!
The fabulous Devos at the BC Championships in March 2013.
Check out this fun video from Coach Dave Damery!
Look for more fun videos and information below.
We are a group of keen 9-13 year-olds who work hard, but we also have a lot of fun! The Devo program follows the Sport Canada — Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) model. We are “Learning to Train” and “Training to Train,” and we learn about racing as a personal challenge. This means that we look at racing as a process where we prepare, participate, support our teammates, and after we race we reflect.
Devos are led by Coach Berend Henckel. If you have Devo questions, contact Berend firstname.lastname@example.org. We are lucky to have Laura and Don Johnston along with Dave Damery (a.k.a. “Double-D”), Gavin McPhail, and Sebastien Marcoux assistant coaching.
