Hellyer County Park Velodrome Mission:
Hellyer County Park Velodrome strives to promote the sport of track cycling by offering diversified racing programs, developing athletes, providing healthy fitness programs for the community and bringing world-class track racing to the Northern California area. As the only velodrome in Northern California, we have a unique opportunity to attract championship cycling events and international racers, build a compelling race series and groom tomorrow’s Olympians.
Hellyer is located in Hellyer County Park and is administered by the NCVA (Northern California Velodrome Association). The velodrome may only be used during a session attended by a designated NCVA track supervisor. Supervisors unlock the facility as needed at the start of a session, collect day use fees, enforce existing NCVA and Santa Clara County Parks use rules and manage guests for safe and effective training, and lock the facility at the end of their sessions.
The Northern California Velodrome Association is the administrative body for the public use of the Hellyer Park Velodrome and as such, exists to provide cycling opportunities on the Hellyer Park Velodrome for the cycling community.
The responsibilities of the NCVA include:
1. Act as the liaison between users and Santa Clara County, the owner of the Hellyer Park Velodrome.
2. Oversee scheduling of all events and programs at the Hellyer Park Velodrome.
3. Develop and enforce guidelines for the use of the Hellyer Park Velodrome. Those guidelines will follow and expand on the rules of the American Track Racing Association.
4. Ensure that a framework of programs exist that enable velodrome racing to thrive in northern California. This may include acting as an event or race promoter.
