Racing Development - The entry level for youth racing, about age 10+
Note that Youth from age 10-17 join at this level.  Motivated youth at the higher end of this age range can usually progress quickly to a higher level by the following summer.

As youth progress in their skills, they can move into Intermediate, Advanced and High Performance groups.
Intermediate and Advanced compete mostly in local and provincial competitions.
High Performance competes up to National and in some cases International events. RHCC has seen great success in the past several years, with several National Champions!
