Team Squamish is the


quick facts

Established in 2005, Team Squamish is a youth cycling team. Its mission is to:
“Create an environment for young athletes to develop their cycling skills and realize their potential, by supporting their training, providing coaching, and enabling opportunity”
It was originally affiliated with SORCA (Squamish Off-Road Cycling Association) and was founded by community members and local bike shop owners. It has since evolved into a non-profit athletic organization funded by athlete fees and by sponsor donations.
Governance is provided by an executive team of community members and parents. All are volunteers and devote their time in support of the team. The athletes are guided during training and supported at races by professional and accredited coaching.
The team helps athletes realize their potential through participation on the “development” team. These athletes compete at the local and provincial level. Seasoned athletes that have had success and show commitment to racing may then achieve “elite” team status which will result in them competing at the national and international level.
Although Team Squamish is a cross-country race team, it encourages its athletes to participate in many cycling disciplines including downhill, BMX, cycle-cross, track and road.

All Team Squamish athletes are
UCI members, licensed by

Cycling BC.

  • In Squamish, as a parent of athletic kids, Team Squamish exposes young riders to Mountain Bike training with a certified coach and a focus on developing kids into racers. Watching the young riders gain confidence with success and grow into accomplished mountain bikers has been rewarding as a parent. Thanks Coach Mike and Team Squamish.

  • Growing up in Squamish exposed me to Mountain Biking at an early age and I quickly decided that it was the sport for me as I loved every aspect of biking. I joined Team Squamish at the age of 13 and with great coaching, training and mentoring from the senior Team Squamish riders, I developed into a successful Mountain Bike racer. Throughout my years on Team Squamish I grew from the youngest rider to being one of the older riders, and really feel like I have come full circle into being able to mentor the younger riders just as I had been mentored. I feel like this mentorship role of the older riders as well as all ages riding and training together is a huge advantage in making riders into successful racers as Team Squamish has done countless times! Thank You Team Squamish Rhys Verner- Kona Factory Team.

  • The Team Squamish program available for youth in town played a integral role in my development not only as an athlete but as a person. Many of my closest relationships and best memories are directly thanks to my time on Team Squamish. As a bike racer, it is safe to say that I would not be where I am today if it were not for Team Squamish.

  • I’m Sean Fincham and I was a part of Team Squamish for 3 years. I joined the team in October of 2013 and started racing in the spring of 2014. I had done some bike racing before I joined Team Squamish which included school, BMX, and DH races. I have had some good success as an XC racer but none of that would have been possible without Team Squamish. Team Squamish provided me with the opportunity to ride as part of a team, working with and against other riders to hone my bike riding skills and build my fitness base. My coach, Mike Charuk, has been and continues to be, a mentor. We talk on a regular basis and he provides me with the tools to race at a high level.
