Who We Are
We are an academy that trains aspiring, young student-athletes, ages 14-20, through summer domestic preparation camps and European competition opportunities.
We focus on long-term, holistic development through both a character-driven curriculum and a process-to-performance philosophy.
Sequentially, ECA provides a critical experiential step in the cyclocross development pathway, from domestic racing to international competition. In this way, ECA acts as a bridge to, potentially, the national team and U23 and professional opportunities.
ECA’s overarching charge is to use the forum of bike racing to teach valuable life-skills and cultivate a spirit of giving back that student-athletes can then apply to their professional and community lives. Through this process, ECA encourages its alumni to act as life-long participants, ambassadors, and advocates for cycling sport.
Donate to ECA
ECA became a non-profit in 2021 and is able to operate, in part, due to donations from giving individuals and groups. Donations help ECA’s critical need areas: a) support for athletes in need of tuition supplement, and b) program infrastructure. EuroCrossAcademy is a tax-exempt public entity under IRS 501(c) (3) and all donations are tax-deductible.
