GO!Durban

Cycle Academy

The GO!Durban Cycle Academy was launched in 2016 as a partnership between Durban Green Corridors and the eThekwini Transport Authority. The academy provides safe, natural open spaces for youth to play, learn, engage and develop through active mobility. Directed and managed by the experienced team at Peschl Sports, the programme provides free weekly cycling training, academic support, and life skills for youth aged 7 - 18 at a number of bike park sites in the eThekwini region.

What We Do.

Community Level : The GO!Durban Cycle Academy aims to encourage a culture of cycling in local communities to integrate non-motorised transport within the Durban transport network, in line with the National Development Plan for 2030 and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Individual Level: The GO!Durban Cycle Academy aims to inspire and nurture well-rounded athletes who are educated, skilled, motivated, and self-confident. By encouraging youth to achieve goals through their own abilities, the programme hopes to instil a sense of ownership and pride in the youth.

Active Mobility.

This is a Grassroots sports development for a broad base of youth within local communities provides maximum social impact for riders at a recreational level. Participants are given the opportunity to race in selected events. Selection is based on technical ability plus academic results according to the “no pass, no race” rule. School reports are assessed every term to determine qualification for the race team. Peschl Sports to select top performers to compete in the Pro-Am Team with additional training and development input provided. This may lead to further opportunities with elite professional teams.

Academic Support.

Aligned to the NDP, enhancing access to quality education is a key focus of our programme. Therefore we employ teachers from the community to provide weekly tutoring in Mathematics & English. There are currently 40 learners enrolled in the academic support programme at each site. They all receive a nutritious meal at the end of the Saturday morning sessions. There is potential opportunity to partner with tertiary institutions for further academic support post Matric.

Environment.

The sports development and open spaces management programmes of DGC educate youth about the importance of looking after the natural environment in which they live and play. Each site (excl. Inanda) has a small veggie garden which is cultivated by the youth themselves, together with help from the coaches and site managers. The fresh produce is shared between households and a portion is used to enhance the nutrition programme.
