Training and Development

The Hub programme will include weekly training sessions for the core Hub rider squad at the SIT Velodrome, as well as development camps scheduled throughout the year.


SIT Southern Performance Hub's head coach is Sid Cumming, who has a long history working in sport development and performance.   
A born and bred Southlander, Sid has been running his business, World Health and Fitness, in Invercargill for the last 26 years working with some of Southalnds top athletes. Sid has also coached Rowing in the 80's, Triathlon in the 90's and 00's and has seen success on the national and international stage. 
In the last five years Sid has been coaching cycling for the Southland under 17 and 19 programme with plenty of success at nationals and with a lot of athletes winning on the world stage.
The best thing for me about coaching is watching good young people achieve their goals and become better people both on and off the bike.
