Development Program Information

In its third season, the Cumber-West Flyers Development Program was founded in 2014 to provide more sport pathways for our region's athletes.

The goal is to deliver a fun, structured, development-first program that will introduce athletes to running and track and field and push them to achieve their personal best. 

There are 15 spots available. The cost is $125, taxes included, and includes a running team t-shirt.
